The Great East Asian War and the Birth of the Korean Nation by JaHyun Kim Haboush

The Imjin War (1592–1598) was a grueling conflict that wreaked havoc on the towns and villages of the Korean Peninsula. The commitment of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean forces, not to mention the regional scope of the war, was the largest the world had seen and dominated East Asian memory until World War II. Despite massive regional realignments, Korea??s Chosôn Dynasty endured, but within its polity a national discourse began to emerge. Meant to inspire civilians to rise up against the Japanese army, this potent rhetoric conjured a unified Korea and intensified after the Manchu invasions of 1627 and 1636.

By documenting this phenomenon, JaHyun Kim Haboush offers a compelling counternarrative to Western historiography, which ties Korea??s idea of nation to the imported ideologies of modern colonialism. This book instead elevates the formative role of the conflicts that defined the second half of the Chosôn Dynasty, transfiguring the geopolitics of East Asia and introducing a national narrative key to Korea??s survival. Re-creating the cultural and political passions that bound Chosôn society together during this period, Haboush reclaims the root story of solidarity that helped Korea thrive well into the modern era.
