Protesting America: Democracy and the U.S.-Korea Alliance

February 21, 2013 // 3:30pm5:30pm

When the U.S.-Korea military alliance began to deteriorate in the 2000s, many commentators blamed "anti-Americanism" and nationalism, especially among younger South Koreans. Challenging these assumptions, Wellesley College professor and former Wilson Center scholar Katharine Moon argues in her latest book that Korean activism around U.S. relations owes more to transformations in domestic politics, including the decentralization of government, the diversification and politics of civil society organizations, and the transnationalization of social movements.

Copies of Moon's book will be available for purchase by cash or personal check at the event. Books can also be purchased in advance at:
