From the publisher’s website:
Using extensive documentation, this book examines how President Jimmy Carter’s troop withdrawal and human rights policies—conceived in abstraction from East Asian realities—contributed to the demise of Korean President Park Chung Hee. The author suggests that some lessons are relevant beyond Korea, for example, in our treatment of human rights problems in China today.
William H Gleysteen Jr was US ambassador in Seoul 1978-1981
