In 1988 Simon Winchester set out on foot to discover the Republic of Korea. He wanted to put the record straight about this bustling South-East Asian country about which so little was written but which so many people thought they already knew. What he found was a striking and diverse country that had thrown off the legacy of war.
Written in the engaging, informed and often humorous style that has won him millions of fans worldwide, this edition of 'Korea', with a new introduction, is a treasury of fascinating and informed insight on the culture, people, language, history and politics of this little-known country.
