This sets the stage for a panoramic treatment of contemporary Korea, including its language and literature, its philosophy and religion, its system of education, its economy, politics and government, its attitudes about family and gender, its visual and performing arts, its progress in science and technology, and its preferences in food and sports. Each receives careful treatment in one or more chapters, with a special chapter devoted to the impact of Korean culture on the world (the Korean wave henomenon). In addition to presenting the essentials of its subject matter, each chapter includes recommendations for additional readings (some in English, some in Korean), and a set of questions for discussion and additional research. ― The review of Essentails of Korean Culture by William O’Grady (University of Hawai’i at Manoa)
