    The debate in South Korea over the government's engagement policy toward North Korea (the so-called 'sunshine? policy) did not start with Pyongyang's recent admission that it has been secretly pursuing a nuclear weapons program in violation of multiple international commitments.

  • A Short History of the Korean Warby James L. Stokesbury

    HarperCollins 2009; US$ 9.99

    As pungent and concise as his short histories of both world wars, Stokesbury's survey of "the half war" takes a broad view and seems to leave nothing out but the details.

    University of Alabama Press 2010; US$ 29.95

    By June 1953 the Korean War, marked at the outset by extremely fluid advances and retreats up and down the peninsula, had settled into position warfare very near the original pre-war demarcation line between North and South Korea.

  • The Korean Warby Cameron Forbes

    Pan Macmillan Australia 2010; US$ 24.54

    The Korean War was a 20th Century conflict that has never ended.
