Join Professor John McKinstry as he takes you for a short ride through an eventful Korean experience from around 1000 A.D. to the present.  The journey includes insights into:

The Korean consciousness of who they are, of how they differ from other groups around them, their cultural and historical identity as a separate and unique people, has long endured against heavy odds. Korea, wedged as it is between powerful forces that have many times tried to obliterate it, has maintained a strong and proud sense of cultural continuity for well over a thousand years.

The Koreans were dominated for hundreds of years by medieval China, invaded by the Mongol hordes, conquered by the Manchus, colonized for half a century by a modernized Japan, but through all that an indomitable spirit prevailed,  and Koreans remained Koreans in every way.

Korea was eventually divided into two enemy nations, surviving a vicious civil war with both sides continuing as they always have, resistance to destruction and assimilation, preserving and modifying a completely distinct and viable cultural system.

John McKinstry, professor of sociology and Asian studies Cal Poly 1968-2014. Recipient of three teaching Fulbright teaching awards to Japan, China and Bulgaria. Author and co-author of several books about Asian societies.
