Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Korean Nationalism Betrayed contains the preface, the acknowledgements and the introduction. The book emphasizes that the ultra-rightist forces in South Korea are not nationalists, but can be defined as toadies dependent on foreign power and that nationalism has not been able to exist as a force or social trend since the Korean War. It is well known that the pro-Japanese collaborators had significant influence on almost every aspect of life, including politics and academia. In contemporary Korean history, expectation and disillusionment have often been experienced. In the meantime, Korean society has changed a lot since the democratization movements took root in the 1980s. In contemporary Korea, there are many serious issues: nation, national consciousness, and the national division, anti-communism, statism, ultra-rightism, the Cold War, pro-Japanese people and ideology.

Keywords: Cold War; democratization movements; Japanese collaborators; Korean nationalism
