    Princeton University Press 2013; US$ 31.95

    Fought on what to Westerners was a remote peninsula in northeast Asia, the Korean War was a defining moment of the Cold War.

    St. Martin's Press 2007; US$ 26.99

    The University Press of Kentucky 2011; US$ 50.00

  • Aesthetic Constructions of Korean Nationalismby Hong Kal

    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 48.95
