    We've been told by our lecturer to read up on the Japanese control/protectorate over Korea, and I was wondering if anybody has any idea of a good, detailed book which deals with this? I have one book but it deals mostly from the beginning of Japanese interest to the signing over of independence in 1910, wheras it doesn't have much after that on life in Korea.

    If anybody could help it will be verrry useful!

    Has the lecturer not given you a reading list? Send him/her an email asking for guidance, they love that kind of thing.

    just looked through my reading list -

    Hilary Conroy - The Japanese seizure of Korea, 1868-1910: a study of realism and idealism in international relations

    A Schmid - Korea between empires

    Peter Duus - The abacus and the sword: the Japanese penetration of Korea - 1895-1910

    hope some of those may be of use!
