The book’s authors analyze the challenges facing the Lee Myung-bak government and suggest ways to address them. Collectively, they sketch an overarching strategy that can ensure Korea’s security and prosperity. The scholars seek to formulate a new national strategy that takes into account the changes that have taken place in the domestic and international landscapes since 1987, the year Korea embarked on a path toward democracy. They are focusing on the key elements of Korea’s new strategy to safeguard national security, promote democracy and spur economic growth. The approach they suggest differs not only from the developmental state model followed by late President Park Chung-hee in the 1960s and 1970s, but also from its variants pursued by the succeeding governments.
