From the bookís introduction:

The 20th century left unprecedented marks in the history of mankind. Korea, too, witnessed events of great significance in this century. It experienced the humiliation of national ruin, fought two bloody wars, and has experienced national division for more than half a century. The country, once eclipsed in the 20th century, is now demonstrating itself as the country of Juche, the country of Chollima, and its socialism, centred on the masses, is making a victorious advance. But, it has undergone many vicissitudes and trying experiences.

This book deals with some of the significant events that took place in Korea in the 20th century. The events treated in this book are not necessarily correlated with one another. It is compiled in a way different from other books on history, and we hope that this book will help readers have a better understanding of Korea.
