Reviews

"[Breaks] new ground... [Hwang has] offered readers an ambitious challenge: one directed to Korean studies, but also one also carrying its implications far beyond."--Cross-Currents
"Rationalizing Korea is an important contribution to the debates over the origins of the powerful goal-oriented Korean state (or sates), the reforms of Choson Korea, and colonial modernization. Beyond the field of Korean studies, it offers insight for all who are interested in the formation of the modern state."-- (07/11/2018)
