The contents of this book were originally published as a series titled "The Ethos of Joseon Confucian" from May 1997 to May 2000 in Korean Culture, compiled under the supervision of Korea Cultural Center in Japan. The contents were reorganized and the title changed to the simpler one of "The Land of Scholars." The book discusses the historical development of Korean Confucianism in terms of its social functions. It also examines the types of transfigurations Confucianism underwent and the role it played in each period of Korean history. The book spans from the Three Kingdoms period in 18 BC to the end of the Joseon era in 1910. It not only gives a comprehensive and in-depth survey of the history of Korean Confucian thought but also touches on the transmission of Buddhism, Confucianism, and Christianity in Korea. Kang Jae-eun, the author of this book, earned his PhD in literature from Kyoto University in Japan. He is regarded as one of the foremost historians that led Japanese academia after the liberation of Korea.
