0 Reviews
This volume brings together for the first time a significant body of Gina Barnes' scholarly work on early Korean State formation, integrated so that successive topics form a coherent overview of the problems and solutions in peninsular state formation.
Gina Barnes' writings differ from the majority of other articles on this subject in being anthropological rather than cultural or historical in nature, and they define the field for the English-language reader.
