About the Author
David Lee Dolinger has a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology from Temple University Medical School and has been developing tests for human diseases, particularly infectious diseases, for more than thirty five years. He has worked in various positions for multiple companies, large and small, and has developed an extensive knowledge concerning the design, development and commercialization of in vitro diagnostic tests and instrumentation.David first arrived in Korea in April of 1978 as a Peace Corps volunteer. His Korean name is Im Dae-oon, which was given to him by his Korean teachers when he first came to Korea. In Korean, his family name, Im, means 'Forest, ' and his given name, Dae-oon, means 'big cloud.' His experiences as a Peace Corps Volunteer and the horror and heroism he witnessed in Kwangju in May 1980 set him on a new path and shaped him into the person he is today.
Originally hailing from Canada, Matt VanVolkenburg first arrived in Korea in 2001. Fascinated by Korea's modern history, in 2005 he began writing about Korean history, society, and culture on his blog, Gusts of Popular Feeling. More recently, he supplemented his history degree with an MA in Korean Studies from the University of Washington and is currently researching 1970s Korean youth culture. Having read voraciously about the Gwangju Uprising since 2001, Matt immediately recognized David's name when they met in an online forum in 2006, and the seeds of this book were first planted when they finally met in person seven years later.
