- The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 50.00
The opening months of 1951 comprised the first winter of the Korean War, and the fighting was as intense as the weather. In The Line: Combat in Korea, January-February 1951 , William T. Bowers analyzes this significant period and its effects on the remainder of the war. The Line is the first of three volumes about the Korean War that focus on combat... more...
- Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 190.00
This volume brings together for the first time a significant body of Professor Barnes' scholarly writing on early Korean state formation, integrated so that successive topics form a coherent overview of the problems and solutions in peninsular state formation. more...
- De Gruyter 2012; US$ 46.00
Der Koreakrieg ist durch den Waffenstillstand vom 27. Juli 1953 nur eingefroren und kann jederzeit wieder ausbrechen. Ein Friedensvertrag existiert bis zum heutigen Tag nicht. Pjöngjangs Politik ist heute noch so undurchschaubar wie damals. Trotzdem sind unsere Kenntnisse - insbesondere dank der Veröffentlichung sowjetischer und chinesischer Quellen... more...
- RAND Corporation 2003; US$ 9.95
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. However, the evolution of the debate will be an important determinant... more...
- 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. The first third covers the North Korean invasion of June 1950, the Pusan perimeter crisis, MacArthur's master stroke at Inchon and the intervention by Chinese forces that November.... more...
- Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2009; US$ 28.99
This comprehensive and balanced history of modern Korea explores the social, economic, and political issues it has faced since being catapulted into the wider world at the end of the nineteenth century. Placing this formerly insular society in a global context, Michael J. Seth describes how this ancient, culturally and ethnically homogeneous society... more...
- University of Alabama Press 2010; US$ 34.95
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. At this point both sides were fighting to win a peace, to achieve incremental advantages that could be translated into... more...
- Pan Macmillan Australia 2010; US$ 22.72
The Korean War was a 20th Century conflict that has never ended. South Korea, a powerhouse economy and dynamic democracy sits uneasily alongside North Korea, the world's most secretive, belligerent, unpredictable and repressive totalitarian state. Today, tensions simmer and occasionally flare into outright violence on a peninsula dense with arms,... more...
