The book deals with development of Korean Studies at School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). The first Korean post was set up at SOAS in 1953 and the first teacher of Korean Studies at SOAS, and in fact in the whole of the UK, was William Skillend. Skillend served at Bletchley Park decoding Japanese military messages, and following his demobilization he became one of the first Japanese Studies students at the Cambridge University's nascent Japanese department.
