            An Illustrated Guide to Korean Mythology

Choi, Won-oh

(Book #ID 97156)

Published by Global Oriental Ltd., Folkestone, Kent First Edition 2008. 2008.

First edition hard back binding in publisher's original bordeaux cloth covers, gilt title and author lettering to the spine. 8vo. 10'' x 7¼''. Contains [x] 317 printed pages of text with colour maps and photographs throughout. This highly engaging volume by one of Korea's leading scholars of comparative mythology - and the first study of its kind in English - provides a valuable introduction to centuries-old beliefs, myths and folk tales relating to Cosmology and Flood, Birth and Agriculture, Messengers of the Underworld, Shamans, Disease, Good Fortune, Love and Family, Gods of Village Shrines, and Heroes. Containing thirty traditional stories, the book is fully illustrated throughout and contains a wide variety of Korean art, including rare shamanist paintings, as well as the work of some contemporary Korean artists. All the stories, based on Korean oral tradition, have been retold by the author according to their main plot and meaning because the original texts' songs by shamans, containing many obsolete words and obscure idioms, are not easily understood today. The original title and source, including text notes, are provided at the end of each story. The author's Introduction sets out the historical background and significance of the myths that appear here. He also provides full details of each of the Korean gods and their roles in mythology. While being a welcome addition to the literature on Korean culture for the non-specialist, An Illustrated Guide to Korean Mythology also provides an invaluable reference source for scholars and researchers in the fields of East Asian Mythology and Anthropology, as well as Korean History, Religion and Literature.

            Korean Nationalism Betrayed

Joong-Seok Seo [Sungkyunkwan University]. Translated by Han Do-Hyun, Academy of Korean Studies, and Pankaj Mohan University of Sydney

(Book #ID 85106)

Published by Global Oriental Ltd., Folkestone, Kent First Edition 2007. 2007.

First edition hard back binding in publisher's original sea blue cloth covers, gilt title and author lettering to the spine. 8vo. 9'' x 6''. Written by Joong- Seok Seo, an eminent Korean historian and a thinker of rare originality, this book examines the tumultuous history of modern Korea from the perspective of nationalism. Based on the author's extensive research and wide-ranging experience, the book goes to the heart of critical questioning about the political uses and abuses of nationalism by the ruling elites of post-liberation Korea. Indeed, Korean Nationalism Betrayed fills a yawning gap in the Western understanding of the authoritarian political structure of South Korea (1948-1988) that manipulated and distorted nationalism by identifying it with ultra-right anti-communism. The author provides a set of thought-provoking and compelling arguments against the assumptions of the Cold War, attributing the continued climate of tension and antagonism between the two Koreas to the tenacity of a Cold War mind-set. He traces the root of the tragedy of national division to the failure of Korean nationalism, and puts forward a compelling case for overcoming the legacy of polarized ideological stance, based on Cold War ideology and embracing a policy of reconciliation and cooperation by both sides.

            Symbolism in Korean Ink Brush Painting

Mullany, Francis

(Book #ID 95621)

Published by Global Oriental Ltd., Folkestone, Kent First Edition 2006. 2006.

First edition hard back binding in publisher's original royal navy blue cloth covers, gilt title and author lettering to the spine. 8vo. 10'' x 7¼''. Contains [xvi] 414 printed pages of text. With more than 200 colour plates, and for the first time available as a study in English, this volume explores the vast heritage of Korean ink brush painting, providing a rich panorama of information that stretches across the entire spectrum of Korean art - including painting, pottery, calligraphy and literature, which will have wide appeal, not least to art lovers and students of Korean Studies. Part I presents the material in essay form; Part II, which uses a dictionary format, summarizes the information in Part I and highlights the hidden messages and symbolism inherent in literati ink brush painting in Korea. When China and Japan opened up to outside influence in the nineteenth century, Korea maintained a closed-door policy, becoming known as the 'hermit kingdom', only to be swallowed up in the struggle for hegemony between the Great Powers. Annexation by Japan in 1910 threatened Korea's language and culture with extinction. Liberation in 1945 was followed by the tragedy of the Korean War in 1950. In the period of reconstruction after the Korean War, artists and scholars faced the task of retrieving Korea's endangered cultural tradition. Ink brush painting is a unique part of this tradition; its history stretches back through the Choson dynasty when Chinese influences were assimilated and absorbed and made into Korea's distinctive tradition.
