Description - Korea Between Empires, 1895-1919 by Andre Schmid
Turning from more traditional modes of historical inquiry, Korea Between Empires explores the formative influence of language and social discourse on conceptions of nationalism, national identity, and the nation-state. This groundbreaking book focuses on two critical periods in Korean history in an attempt to explore the elaborate process of producing a national knowledge. Looking at the often-ignored questions of representation, narrative, and rhetoric in the construction of public sentiment, Schmid traces the genealogies of key concepts and assumptions that were put forward by Korea's major newspapers at times of social and political upheaval. He asks how the consequences and contributions of this writing have ultimately affected the course of Korean nationalism over the last century. Utilizing an international approach, this book analyzes Korean nationalist thought in the context of the decline of the Chinese empire and the rise of Japanese colonialism.
