Throughout its 4,000-year history, Korea has created a vibrant and unique culture. Unfortunately, many believe it developed solely due to China's influence, thus leaving no room for an independent history and culture. This is simply wrong.


The New History of Korean Civilization explores the existence of a distinctive Korean culture established by the Korean people and separate from its Chinese and Japanese counterparts. Author Chai-Shin Yu, distinguished professor of Korean studies, surveys the history of cultural life in Korea and provides a detailed account of this country's remarkable heritage.


From the prehistoric age through the rise of the Choson Dynasty and up to the creation of the Republic of Korea, this concise history traces the development of history, politics, philosophy, religion, literature, and art. Chai-Shin Yu shows how Korean culture also played a vital role in the formation of Japanese culture.


Written for the purpose of introducing the roots of Korean culture to Westerners and second-generation Koreans living in the West, The New History of Korean Civilization is a bold addition to the historiography of Korea.

Korean culture

The New History of Korean Civilization by Chai-Shin Yu brings up to the readers a revolutionary perspective upon the evolution of Korea during its 4 millennium existence. The author shows that China and Japan had an influence on the Korean culture, but this was vice-versa. The Korean traditions and some of its historical events shaped the cultural issues of Japan and led to an interconnection between them. It is an insightful book that brings a new way of seeing the development of a great state that now it is divided, as in the model of China in communist and capitalist economies and state politics.
