[Korean study series 19]
This book summerizes the history of 5.5 million Overseas Koreans and their lives in more than 140 nations in the world. Historical background and living conditions of host societies are different each other. However there are common characteristics which identify them as Korean: the hard working people and model middle-class minority in the host countries.
