Asia's Unknown Uprisings, Volume 1: South Korean Social Movements in the 20th Century


Manufacturer: PM Press

Product Information

"Using social movements as a prism to illuminate the oft-hidden history of twentieth century Korea, this book provides detailed analysis of major uprisings that have patterned that country’s politics and society. With a central focus on the Gwangiu Uprising, which ultimately proved decisive in South Korea's democratization, Katsiaficas extrapolates Korean experiences to examine possibilities of global social movements in the twenty-first century. The book's historical sweep ranges from conflicts as Korea entered the modern era, to the country's division and the Korean War, through to opposition to neoliberal economic policies and ongoing struggles in the Internet age."

George Katsiaficas. PM Press, 2012.
