|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.
