vii + 249pp, index, bibliography, dustjacket worn and chipped with few small closed tears, edges little browned, a good copy.
Royal Asiatic Society monograph. An insightful and vigorous study of a profound problem: how to apply cherished Western ideals of law to the Korean situation, where political values and institutions have been consciously modelled after those of ancient China. What is the function of law and social justice in 'late developing' Asian countries? In view of Korea's socio-economic tradition, can these abstract Western principles find meaningful application in the practical sphere - in such problems as abortion, usury, property rights, penitentiaries, and the treatment of the insane?
