Book Reviews

Today, one of the hotspots in the world is the unending unrest between North and South Korea. As someone who believes that Iran’s nuclear bomb capabilities are being tested and upgraded in North Korea, this book approaches the resolution of the Korean conflict and the challenges they face for the unification of these two countries and one people. Therefore, I encourage readers to explore Korean Dream by Dr. Moon. It gives a cogent path to peace for the Koreas and the world. Harold E. Doley, Jr.

The author understands that the unification of the Korean peninsula with Hongik Ingan as its ideology is not only desired by the nation but also linked with the future of the world… [The] ideology of Hongik Ingan and the Korean peninsula on which it would be manifest would be the ultimate factor in stabilizing the Northeast Asia region and a factor in the actualization of world peace… Individuals, authorities of unification policies in the government, and researchers of unification challenges in academic circles must read Korean Dream.
