Abstract

In Park Chung Hee and Modern Korea: The Roots of Militarism, 1866-1945, Carter J. Eckert traces the roots of South Korea’s political transformation in the 1960s and 1970s through its history of militarisation, focusing particularly on the early years of former South Korean leader, Park Chung Hee. Jeff Roquen praises the book’s robust analysis of the influence of militarism on South Korean politics and society.
