Publisher's Note
Despite the passage of over forty years since the official end of the civil war in Korea, the north and the south sections of the country remain technically at war. Roy Richard Grinker suggests that a fundamental obstacle to peace on the peninsula is that South Korea has become a nation in which nearly all aspects of economic, political, and cultural identity are defined in opposition to North Korea. He further demonstrates that in spite of its status as a sacred goal for all Koreans, the idea of unification threatens the world in which almost every South Korean has been born and raised.

Reviews
"A provocative sociocultural study . . ." Library Journal "The subject of the unification of the Korean peninsula is crowded with the work of political scientists. The value of Grinker's book is that he introduces a fresh set of analytical tools, those of the anthropologist." Choice "...thoughtful and provocative book...." Journal of Asian Studies
