First edition.[Jacket copy] Korea, long a victim of Japanese imperialism, is today a battleground where long smoldering antagonisms of the Soviet-sponsored communist regime and the American-supported Republic of Korea have burst into open conflict.

Behind this struggle looms the ominous fact of intensified Soviet-American rivalries, endangering world peace.Here is the first comprehensive study of Korea since its liberation and division. Written by an outstanding American authority with long personal knowledge of the country, it provides an analysis of the American and Russian military occupations, the efforts of the United Nations to deal with the problem of unification of the country, the political and economic policies followed in the northern and southern regimes, and an appraisal of the U.S program of economic and military aid to South Korea.

A useful appendix of documents, tables and bibliography, together with a note on Korean demography, is included.Professor McCune wrote out of a deep love and intimate knowledge of Korea, having been born in Pyong-yang and lived nearly half his life there. As an official in the State Department in 1944-45, he was instrumental in shaping decisions at a most important time in Korean history.

Professor McCune was later on the faculty of the University of California. He had finished nine-tenths of the study before his untimely death in 1948. The book was completed and brought up-to-date by his assistant, Mr. Arthur L. Grey, and his wife, Mrs. Evelyn McCune.
