By Donald Stone Macdonald
Westview Press, 1992, 345 pp

This volume, originally written by the author when he was employed by the U.S. government, is based on recently declassified material in the archives of the Department of State and will be extremely useful to future historians seeking to understand the earlier years of the U.S.-South Korean relationship. It traces the evolution of the relationship from 1945 to 1965.
