Título: Park Chung-Hee: From Poverty to Power
Editorial: The KHU Press
Condición del libro:New
How do we explain Park Chung-Hee’s determination to push through the coup d’état in 1961 and the modernization programs afterward? How did his family’s poverty and his experiences in Manchuria, Japan, and China affect his later career as South Korea’s leader? How would he have answered his critics’ charge that he was a pro-Japanese collaborator and a Communist renegade? How can we explain his harsh suppression of domestic dissidents and opponents? In trying to answer these and other questions, Lee presents a kaleidoscopic history of modern Korea from the 1890s to the 1960s. Like Park, the author also grew up under Japanese rule and lived in Manchuria, where Park spent more than three years. This meticulously researched book uses Korean, Japanese, and English sources to put Park’s life into historical context.About the Author:
