이 책은 현대 한국 사회와 사회 제도에 대한 연구논문들을 엮은 것으로, 현대 한국 사회에 대해 공부하는 이들을 위한 좋은 입문서이다. 한국의 문화와 가족, 교육, 경제, 젠더, 종교에 이르기까지 한국 사회의 다양한 주제들을 아우르고 있다. 특히 한국사회의 중요한 변화와 동향을 통찰하는 데 역점을 두어, 가부장제와 고령화, 인종적 다양성, 교육열, 도시화, 반미주의 등에 주목하고 있다.
해외에서 한국에 대한 학문적 및 대중적 관심이 매우 커지고 있다는 점에서 이 책의 출판은 시의적절하다. 동시대 한국의 정치, 경제, 문화를 다루고 있는 영문 도서는 꽤 많이 출간되었으나 영문으로 간행된 한국 사회 관련 연구서는 몇 안 되는 것이 사실이다. 이 책은 한국학을 영어로 가르치는 이들에게 좋은 강의자료가 되어줄 것이고, 또한 연구자들을 비롯해 한국에 대해 관심을 지닌 이들에게 한국 사회에 대한 전반적이고 깊은 이해의 통로 구실을 할 것이다.
