About the Book This book is based on the 2010 lecture series of the Societas Koreana. The Academy of Korean Studies publishes a collection of Societas Koreana lecture entitled "A Glimpse into Korea." We hope this book, covering a variety of topics about Korea such as art, history, philosophy, diplomacy, politics, economics, and architecture, would be an accessible source of Korean culture and society.
