Abstract

214 The Journal of Korean Studies ing translation first, though it is followed by a more accurate translation later, may confuse the student-readers. Overall, however, this textbook is at least as trustworthy and user-friendly as other English-language surveys of Korean history from ancient times to the pres­ ent day and includes more information. Anyone planning on teaching a one- or two-semester survey of Korean history should include Michael Seth's A Hi story of Korea among the textbooks considered for assigning to the students. Its merits far outweigh any demerits it may have. NO TE I. Gyongtaek Kim, "Emergence of Soc iopolitical Diff erentiation in Korean Prehis­ tory: Focusing on the Boseong River Valley in So uthwe stern Korea," Review of Korean Studies 7, no. I (March 2004): 71-72. Kim states that there are almost 30,000 dolmens in South Korea alone and probably another 14 ,000 in North Korea.
