Descrizione libro PERIPLUS EDITIONS, United States, 2012. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. 206 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. South Korea s amazing rise from the ashes: the inside story of an economic, political, and cultural phenomenon Long overshadowed by Japan and China, South Korea is a small country that happens to be one of the great national success stories of the postwar period. From a failed state with no democratic tradition, ruined and partitioned by war, and sapped by a half-century of colonial rule, South Korea transformed itself in just fifty years into an economic powerhouse and a democracy that serves as a model for other countries. With no natural resources and a tradition of authoritarian rule, Korea managed to accomplish a second Asian miracle. Daniel Tudor is a journalist who has lived in and written about Korea for almost a decade. In Korea: The Impossible Country, Tudor examines Korea s cultural foundations; the Korean character; the public sphere in politics, business, and the workplace as well as the family, dating, and marriage. In doing so, he touches on topics as diverse as shamanism, clan-ism, the dilemma posed by North Korea, the myths about doing business in Korea, the Koreans renowned hard-partying ethos, and why the infatuation with learning English is now causing huge social problems. South Korea has undergone two miracles at once: economic development and complete democratization. The question now is, will it become as some see Japan, a rich yet aging society, devoid of energy and momentum? Or will the dynamism of Korean society and its willingness to change--as well as the opportunity it has now to welcome outsiders into its fold--enable it to experience a third miracle that will propel it into the ranks of the world s leading nations in terms of human culture, democracy, and wealth? More than just one journalist s account, Korea: The Impossible Country also draws on interviews with many of the people who made South Korea what it is today. These include: Choi Min-sik, the star of -Old Boy-. Park Won-soon, Mayor of Seoul. Soyeon Yi, Korea s first astronaut Hong Myung-bo, legendary captain of Korea s 2002 FIFA World Cup team. Shin Joong-hyun, the Godfather of Korean Rock . Ko Un, poet. Hong Seok-cheon, restaurateur, and the first Korean celebrity to come out .And many more, including a former advisor to President Park Chung-hee; a Shaman priestess ( mudang ); the boss of Korea s largest matchmaking agency; a room salon hostess; an architect; as well as chefs, musicians, academics, entrepreneurs, homemakers, and chaebol conglomerate employees.
