This book explains the roots, politics, and legacy of Korean ethnic nationalism, which is based on the sense of a shared bloodline and ancestry. Belief in a racially distinct and ethnically homogeneous nation is widely shared on both sides of the Korean peninsula, although some scholars believe it is a myth with little historical basis. Finding both positions problematic and treating identity formation as a social and historical construct that has crucial behavioral consequences, this book examines how such a blood-based notion has become a dominant source of Korean identity, overriding other forms of identity in the modern era. It also looks at how the politics of national identity have played out in various contexts in Korea: semicolonialism, civil war, authoritarian politics, democratization, territorial division, and globalization.

2005 will be remembered as a year with crucial implications for the Korean peninsula and beyond. It may go down in history as the year the United States was able to establish a foundation to resolve, peacefully and once and for all, the intractable problem of North Korea's nuclear weapons activity. It could also be the year that North Korea committed itself to becoming a nuclear weapons state without compromise. Understanding that 2005 had the potential to be a watershed, the contributors to this timely volume —which grew out of a major conference at the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia- Pacific Research Center at Stanford University —present a snapshot of what is happening in North Korea, consider how Americans and South Koreans view current developments, and offer policy suggestions about what can and should be done going forward, long after 2005 draws to a close. Contributors include Robert Carlin (Korean Peninsula Energy Development Organization), Haksoon Paik (Sejong Institute, Korea), William B. Brown (U.S. Civil Service, ret., and George Mason University), Dong Yong Sueng (Samsung Economic Research Institute), David Hawk (U.S. Committee for Human Rights in North Korea), Kim Ki-Sik (People's Solidarity for Participatory Democracy), Scott Snyder (Asia Foundation/Pacific Forum CSIS),Taik-young Hamm (Kyungnam University), and Henry S. Rowen (Shorenstein APARC).
