    When i came to korea in 1990 to live and work, my knowledge of korea was what i was able to glean from a south korean fodor's travel guide, travel information from the korea national tourism agency, a couple badly photocopied pages of firsthand experiences by english teachers at the language school i would be teaching at in southern seoul, and a feature story in an issue of national geographic magazine.

    There is no dearth of information about korea and it seems with every new book or blog about korea another expert chimes in.

    Additionally, it should be required reading for anyone doing business in korea: from students and military personnel to business persons and diplomats.

    In korea, the impossible country, tudor explains korea like a person in a long-term relationship about her partner.

    For example, as the book discusses han [한]--a sorrowful emotion that is widely recognized to form a significant strain in korean aesthetics--tudor introduces a novelist who claims that han is a relatively new concept implanted by imperial japan in the early 20th century as it was colonizing korea.

    Regardless of the strength of this claim, simply introducing this claim does much to refresh the prevalent discussion about han that is often banal in english-language literature about korea.

    In many parts, it overly relies on confucianism to explain away characteristics of korean society when jumping straight into the facts would have been preferable.
