Traditional Korean philosophy : problems and debates, 2017.
This unique volume of original essays presents in-depth analyses of representative periods, problems, and debates within the long and rich history of Korean philosophy. It provides the reader with a sense of the problems that motivated thinkers within the tradition and the kinds of arguments that characterize their reflections. With contributions from some of the best and most significant contemporary Korean philosophers, this volume marks an important new stage in the Western-language study and appreciation of Korean philosophy. In order for philosophy to be understood and appreciated as philosophy it must at some point be presented and evaluated as the human effort to understand problems through a process of careful and sustained analysis and argument. This anthology offers Western readers the first opportunity to meet and engage with traditional Korean Buddhist and Confucian philosophy on these terms. (издателят)

Le bouddhisme coreen, 2016.
Traduire le bouddhisme corйen et la culture du Son reste une aventure et un defi. Le traducteur doit en permanence composer avec la dimension plurilingue du vocabulaire bouddhique contemporain : mots d'origine sanscrite, expressions en chinois classique, termes sino-corйens, lexique d'origine coreenne et anglais. Redige en langue coreenne, cette presentation a d'abord fait l'objet d'une traduction anglaise assez libre, publiee en 2009 et destinee a un public international. La presente version en langue franзaise, traduite a partir du coreen, en constitue une forme a la fois reactualisee et adaptee, comportant de nombreux amenagements (glossaire et concordance, cartes et illustrations, indications chronologiques, choix de romanisation). Les lecteurs familiers du bouddhisme d'Asie orientale liront avec profit l'abondant glossaire, particulierement utile dans un contexte ou il n'existe pas de guide lexical et iconographique faisant veritablement autorite.

Temple Stay : a journey of Self-discovery, 2014.
A temple stay is a short sojourn at a temple where one goes to follow monastic rules of life. For this reason, many seek out temples for the explicit purpose of having a rest. It is for this reason that a temple stay can be compared to a nap: a short break from oneТs daily routine provides the energy necessary to carry on with oneТs busy existence. The various programs offered around the country all possess, to some degree, the essence of Korean Buddhism. This book uses simple terms to explain the meaning of some of the rituals that one may encounter at a temple stay and gives insight into the history, philosophy and practices of Korean Buddhism. Are you ready to transcend the boundaries of religion and depart for a temple stay, the storehouse of Korean Buddhist culture. Open your mind to the information contained in this book. (издателят)

Hastings, Justin V. Most enterprising country : North Korea in the global economy, 2016.
North Korea has survived the end of the Cold War, massive famine, numerous regional crises, punishing sanctions, and international stigma. In A Most Enterprising Country, Justin V. Hastings explores the puzzle of how the most politically isolated state in the world nonetheless sustains itself in large part by international trade and integration into the global economy. The world's last Stalinist state is also one of the most enterprising, as Hastings shows through in-depth examinations of North KoreaÒs import and export efforts, with a particular focus on restaurants, the weapons trade, and drug trafficking. Tracing the development of trade networks inside and outside North Korea through the famine of the 1990s and the onset of sanctions in the mid-2000s, Hastings argues that the North Korean state and North Korean citizens have proved pragmatic and adaptable, exploiting market niches and making creative use of brokers and commercial methods to access the global economy.North Korean trade networks – which include private citizens as well as the Kim family and high-ranking elites – accept high levels of risk and have become experts at operating in the blurred zones between licit and illicit, state and nonstate, and formal and informal trade. This entrepreneurialism has allowed North Korea to survive; but it has also caused problems for foreign firms investing in the country, emboldens the North Korean state in its pursuit of nuclear weapons, and may continue to shape the economy in the future.

Lee, Keun. Economic Catch-up and Technological Leapfrogging : the path to development and macroeconomic stability in Korea, 2016.
This book elaborates upon the dynamic changes to Korean firms and the economy from the perspective of catch-up theory. The central premise of the book is that a latecomer's sustained catch-up is not possible by simply following the path of the forerunners but by creating a new path or leapfrogging. In this sense, the idea of catch-up distinguishes itself from traditional views that focus on the role of the market or the state in development. The author provides a comprehensive account of the micro and macro level changes, deals with both firm- and country-level capabilities, and explores the issue of macroeconomic stability to overcome financial crisis. The book demonstrates that at the firm level the focus is on innovation capabilities, diversification, internationalization and job creation. It goes on to examine the rise and upgrading of big businesses, such as Samsung, as well as the global success of SMEs. (Edward Elgar Publishing)

Internationalizing higher education in Korea : challenges and opportunities in comparative perspective, 2016.
Student mobility to and among higher education systems in Asia has reached unprecedented levels. In particular, inbound and outbound student mobility creates twin challenges-growing diversity in host countries and brain drain and circulation for sending countries-that have significant implications for growing intra-regional mobility, competition, and cooperation within Northeast Asia. This book examines these and other related, timely issues for the case of South Korea, a major player in the internationalization of higher education in Asia, and draws on the experiences of other key players in the region and beyond-Japan, China, Singapore, and the United States-to engage in a comparative discussion of Korea's successes, failures, and ongoing challenges. By doing so, Internationalizing Higher Education in Korea offers critical perspectives on the internationalization of Korean higher education as well as innovative, policy-relevant solutions for Asian countries undergoing similar challenges. It will be a valuable addition to the growing literature on comparative and international education in Asia and can aid university administrators and policymakers striving to internationalize their higher education systems to meet new challenges.

Maedeup : Korean Traditional Decorative Knotting, 2016.
Maedeup is the Korean traditional craft of knotting which derives from the early practice of using knots in fishing nets and agricultural tools. The semi-lunar stone knife which was associated with rice cultivation during the Korean Bronze Age (1500 – 300 BCE) consisted of a slate blade with two holes where a finger loop was tied. The practical knot gradually developed into a decorative art form during the Three Kingdoms Period (37 BCE – 668 CE) and reached a peak during the late Choson period (1392 – 1910). Traditionally maedup adorned all aspects of everyday life including sedan chairs, flags, portraits, musical instruments, clothing accessories, as well as household decoration in general. The combination of 38 knot types and nine forms of tassel produced a wide range of shapes inspired by nature and daily life, such as the dragonfly, lotus bud, chicken and the traditional Korean drum (changgu).

Lee, Peter H. An anthology of traditional Korean literature, 2017.
This revised, expanded anthology, compiled and edited by pioneering scholar and translator Peter H. Lee, offers a representative selection of traditional Korean literature. Its rich and diverse selections, covering all genres and forms written in classical (literary) Chinese and the vernacular Korean language, were chosen for both their literary merit and socio-historical engagement with their times. Divided into four parts – verse, prose, fiction, and oral literature – representing the four major branches of traditional Korean literature, it includes previously undervalued or suppressed texts such as Koryo love lyrics, shamanist narrative songs, and pansori -creations composed in the mind, retained in memory, sung to audiences, and heard, not read. Every effort has been made to render KoreaТs literary past credibly and meaningfully. (издателят)

Тази книга е нова концепция за лексикален информационен речник, който въвежда сродни думи на корейското съществително, т.е. свързани думи от една тема. Лексикалната дума за връзка, която се третира от гледна точка на традиционната семантика и лексикография, е дума, чието отношение се определя от смисъла на думата, като синоними / антоними. Свързаната с нея тема не е свързана с конкретен вид семантична връзка, а е свързана с една тема. Книгата съдържа съществителни, тематично свързани с всяко от 5000-те високочестотни съществителни на корейски. До 50 думи, свързани с темата, са изброени по реда на съответствието. В зависимост от нуждите на читателите и изследователите, могат да бъдат избрани и използвани само някои свързани с темата думи. (издателят)

Hanok : the traditional korean house, 2016.
A special feature of the traditional Korean Hanok building style is its difference from Western styles. The Hanoks preserved to this day are built according to practical housing needs, while featuring distinct regional differences and adaptations to their surrounding landscapes. They breathe the style and flair of their inhabitants' lives and traces of them can be found almost everywhere within these old houses. Historian Cha Jang-seop explains: Inhabitants and house are one. When you see someone, you can image the houses he lives in. Koreans have traditionally acknowledged that a person's honour and dignity is also that of his home. A home is thus a subject like a person, the (hi)story of the house is at the same time the (hi)story of its inhabitants. This is why the beautifully designed traditional houses were officially recognised as national cultural heritage. They are simultaneously recognised as important subjects of scientific research and as natoinal cultural monuments. The fourty houses featured in this book are acknowledged as important national cultural assets, that display the characteristics of Korean traditional houses according to their regional location, age, building type. They are introduced by a brief history and feature photographs portraying the true nature of each traditional house. The range of houses portrayed speaks to their importance as national heritage and the unique characteristic and value of traditional Korean culture. (издателят)

Kimchi, a popular Korean food for several millenniums, symbolizes Korean ethnic identity and its endurance, and IT (information technology) epitomizes Korean cultural transformation in the global era. Written in English, this book delineates Korea old and newKorea's enduring tradition and recent transformation. Despite Korea's recent visibility in the world community, heightened by its phenomenal economic growth and rapid industrialization, by and large, Korea has been obscure for so long, and often grossly misunderstood. Nevertheless, one can hardly find any comprehensive book that introduces Korea and Koreans. Despite the absence of such a guiding book, people around the world have expressed interest in the Koreans who are entering our lives as employers, business associates, and partners. (издателят)

Seth, Michael J. A concise history of premodern Korea : from the late nineteenth century to the present : Vol. 2, 2016.
Now in a fully revised and updated edition, this comprehensive and balanced history of modern Korea explores the social, economic, and political issues it has faced since being catapulted into the wider world at the end of the nineteenth century. Placing this formerly insular society in a global context, Michael J. Seth describes how this ancient, culturally and ethnically homogeneous society first fell victim to Japanese imperialist expansionism, and then was arbitrarily divided in half after World War II. Seth traces the postwar paths of the two Koreas – with different political and social systems and different geopolitical orientations – as they evolved into sharply contrasting societies. South Korea, after an unpromising start, became one of the few postcolonial developing states to enter the ranks of the first world, with a globally competitive economy, a democratic political system, and a cosmopolitan and dynamic culture. By contrast, North Korea became one of the world's most totalitarian and isolated societies, a nuclear power with an impoverished and famine-stricken population. Considering the radically different and historically unprecedented trajectories of the two Koreas, Seth assesses the insights they offer for understanding not only modern Korea but the broader perspective of world history. All readers looking for a balanced, knowledgeable history will be richly rewarded with this clear and cogent book. (издателят)
