Abstract

korean studies, vol. 26, no. 1 These are minor points, however. This book is a work of extraordinary scholarship. Duncan's research is thorough and exhaustive, and his analysis throughout the book is perceptive and perspicacious. Duncan's analytical studies are in turn combined with theoretical discussions drawing ideas from diverse studies of historical institutions and thoughts that go beyond the confines of Korea. This is one of those rare books that not only stimulates your thinking: it challenges you to rethink your entire concept and the knowledge that you may have about Korea and its neighboring countries. Frankly, I am awestruck by the magnificence of Duncan's scholarship. Yong-ho Ch'oe University of Hawai`i at Manoa ¯ NOTES 1. Koryosa, 102: 6b. 2.
