Affair with Korea af Vincent S. R. Brandt

Affair with Korea - E-bog

- Memories of South Korea in the 1960s

Bag om Affair with Korea

In 1966 Vincent S. R. Brant lived in Sokpo, a poor and isolated South Korean fishing village on the coast of the Yellow Sea, carrying out social anthropological research. At that time, the only way to reach Sokpo, other than by boat, was a two hour walk along foot paths. This memoir of his experiences in a village with no electricity, running water, or telephone shows Brandts attempts to adapt to a traditional, preindustrial existence in a small, almost completely self-sufficient community. This vivid account of his growing admiration for an ancient way of life that was doomed, and that most of the villagers themselves despised, illuminates a social world that has almost completely disappeared.
