The series “A Sourcebook” organizes and provides primary data sorted by subjects and areas on the understanding of and research into modern Korean society and culture in an attempt to meet academic interest on the foreign study of Korea in its rapid achievements of industrialization, democratization, and social change.
Modern Korean Family: A Sourcebook is designed to be the most basic reference book for researchers, both within and outside of Korea, who are pursuing research on subjects related to the Korean Family. It should serve as an essential reference tool both for non-Korean researchers who are unfamiliar with issues related to the Korean Family and for any researcher having difficulties accessing resources related to the Korean Family, which are unfortunately only available in the Korean language.
