This book purports to investigate and compare the economic development experiences in both Taiwan and South Korea in last two decades.

The book examines whether the three factors —the role of private business, government policy, and foreign influence—that had contributed to Taiwan’s and Korea’s post-war development, are still relevant during the post-industrial development era.

The American Press and the Cold War: The Rise of Authoritarianism in South Korea, 1945–1954

The American Press and the Cold War: The Rise of Authoritarianism in South Korea, 1945–1954 By Oliver Elliott
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 257 Pages | ISBN : 331976022X | 4 MB

During the Cold War, the United States enabled the rise of President Syngman Rhee’s repressive government in South Korea, and yet neither the American occupation nor Rhee’s growing authoritarianism ever became particularly controversial news stories in the United States. Could the press have done more to scrutinize American actions in Korea? Did journalists fail to act as an adequate check on American power? In the first archive-based account of how American journalism responded to one of the most significant stories in the history of American foreign relations, Oliver Elliott shows how a group of foreign correspondents, battling U.S. military authorities and pro-Rhee lobbyists, brought the issue of South Korean authoritarianism into the American political mainstream on the eve of the Korean War. However, when war came in June 1950, the press rapidly abandoned its scrutiny of South Korean democracy, marking a crucial moment of transition from the era of postwar idealism to the Cold War norm of American support for authoritarian allies.

Once a mountain kingdom of ancient palaces and emperors, Korea in the 21st century is largely known for its modern cities and decades of conflict. Tensions between North and South may be what defines it to outsiders but beyond the battle scars there is another side to Korea. In the south are large pockets of untouched wilderness where extraordinary animals flourish and Koreans continue to practice age-old traditions in tandem with the seasons and with nature. It is in these connections, rather than in division, that we see the true Korea.
