Dr Hun Joon Kim has had his book formally accepted by Cornell University Press. The book is called TheMassacres at Mt. Halla: Sixty Years of Truth-Seeking in South Korea, it’s about a series of mass killings that took place on Jeju Island in South Korea initially justified as counter-insurgency against Communist rebels, and the campaign for decades afterwards to uncover what happened and have the event acknowledged by the government.

This fits in with Hun Joon’s more general research on transitional justice and human rights, the book should be released in late 2013.
