Dr. Hyun Jin P. Moon’s book, Korean Dream: A Vision for a Unified Korea, has made the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Director’s 2018 Professional Reading List, released early in March.
In the intro to his reading list, Lt. General Robert P. Ashley Jr. writes, “By reading, we can learn from the experiences of an immeasurable number of people. And, hopefully, our reading allows us to learn from the mistakes of others, before we make those mistakes ourselves. Old ideas give us new ideas. History really does teach us something. It inspires, motivates, and elevates us.”
His list of 94 books is organized in the topics of: Leadership and Professional Development, History and Global Analysis. Korean Dream is in the Global Analysis section and is among the ones that the DIA Director has read.
Korean Dream: A Vision for a Unified Korea, first printed in Korean in 2014, was republished in 2017 with additions. The Japanese version was published in 2015 and the English version in 2016. Both are available here.
Dr. Moon explores the issue of the Korean division and offers an innovative way forward to resolving the security, economic and social problems caused by the ongoing division that is rooted on a common vision rooted in the shared heritage of the Korean people.
