Южная Корея 1945-1948. Политическая история
The book focuses on the analysis of political processes in South Korea since liberation from Japanese colonialism in August 1945 till an establishment of the Republic of Korea in August 1948. The political story of the era of liberation (1945-1948) figures as a period of tense sociopolitical standoff, which involved national groups and international forces. The political discussions over trusteeship regime, land issue, punishment of Korean collaborators, and other actual problems of the national development strengthen tensions between the Soviet Union and the United States after the World War II. The author attempts to define how South Korean political groups and international forces contributed to the tragic ending of the unfolding geopolitical conflict – a division of Korea into two independent states.
