Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the theory of unification through Northward Advance as it was developed before the Korean War, keeping in mind the fact that the theory underwent change before and after the war. It focuses on the relevance of Rhee Syngmans's theory of unification through Northward Advance to his unification policies and proposals and examines in what ways it was related to his political power and to his ultra-right anticommunist regime. The chapter also discusses what kind of roles his unification theory played in the strategy of the ultra-right anti-communist regime and why Rhee Syngman developed his unification theory through mass mobilization. The meaning and political purpose of Rhee's unification theory can be more clearly understood through a comparative study of Rhee's Theory of Unification through Northward Advance and Jo Bong-Am's theory of peaceful unification.

Keywords: Jo Bong-Am's Theory; Korean War; mass mobilization; Northward Advance; Rhee Syngmans's theory of unification
