1 Kihl, Young Whan Politics and Policies in Divided Korea : Regimes in Contest
This comparative study of North and South Korea is unique in its analysis of Korean politics as a manifestation of the politics of a divided nation. Professor Kihl discusses the details of developments in the two Koreas in the context of the political dynamics and processes in each culture, and its links with the external environment. After surveying changes occurring between 1945 and 1980, he focuses largely on the politics of transition in the era of the 1980s, interrelating domestic and foreign politics with specific domestic policies, foreign policy behavior, and unification policy pursued by the Korean regimes. 307 pages with index, bibliography, and notes. Pencil underlining in one section. A few light scratches on the cover, with a few light pen marks on the bottom edges. 8 3/4" x 6" wide

2 Tarlo, Emma Unsettling Memories: Narratives of the Emergency in India
0520231228 / 9780520231221; This richly detail ethnographic work tells the story of a period of deep civil unrest in India. In 1975 Indira Gandhi declared a state of emergency which gave her the power to silence opposition through arrests and censorship, and to introduce a new program of reform which included draconian campaigns of slum clearance and family planning. In the capital city of Delhi access to basic civic amenities became dependent on the production of a sterilization certificate. For many of the city's poorest inhabitants whose homes had been demolished, the choice was between sterilization or homelessness. This book's documentation and analysis of the relationship between state archives and lived experience is methodologically innovative, charting new ground for anthropologists and political scientists concerned with the role of the state in everyday life. Includes sources and an index, with photographs throughout. The top right and left corners are slightly bumped. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
