SUNY-SNU Textbook Series
In 1994, the Korean Studies Program entered into a partnership with Seoul National University in Korea to create a series of 11 original textbooks in various areas of Korean Studies. Scholars at SNU were to write and edit the volumes in Korean, and we were to oversee the translation and the publication. All costs were borne by SNU and the Korea Foundation, with additional funding from the Daesan foundation in Korea.
Two books have been published in the SUNY Press Korean Studies Series: The Korean Language, edited by Ik Sop Lee and S. Robert Ramsey (2000), and Understanding Korean Politics, edited by Chung-in Moon (2001). Two more are presently under consideration by SUNY Press.
