There has been a rapid accumulation of new scholarship on colonial Korea in particular and comparative colonialism in general within the last ten years. This volume gathers these articles from a variety of venues to allow researchers, students, and readers to access the most important scholarship on colonial Korea published in English. The volume will facilitate the rediscovery of a few older articles, insightful articles published in relatively less well-known outlets, and touchstone works, all in one convenient series. This will be useful to researchers of modern Korea and modern Japan, as well as serving a resource of courses that cover Korean history, Japanese history, and history of colonialism. As one of the few cases of non-Western colonialism, the volume will also be invaluable for researchers interested in expanding their knowledge of comparative colonialism.
