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.

This sourcebook provides scholars, development practitioners, and government officials with a representative sample of original source documents of the Saemaul Undong experience now available for examination in several archival collections. Documents in the collection range from presidential directives and personal presidential reflections to guidelines developed by various government agencies involved in Saemaul Undong administration and testimonials of villagers involved in the grassroots implementation of Saemaul Undong village development projects.
