ABOUT THE BOOK

North Korea today is a rogue state threatening global peace and challenging the conscience of humanity. In the South, Koreans now face long-term social consequences from the pursuit of economic development at all costs.

In Korean Dream, Dr. Hyun Jin Preston Moon presents an innovative way forward on the Korean peninsula. He explains lucidly why Korean reunification is the ultimate answer to security, economic, and social problems created through 70 years of division. He goes a step further, offering a groundbreaking approach to peace rooted in the founding principles and cultural practices that have made Koreans one people for millennia.

Korean Dream highlights the importance of civil society organizations in promoting historical changes, and is a call to action to Koreans and their friends everywhere. Today, Dr. Moon is leading the way, inspiring an unprecedented coalition of groups to work for the long-cherished hope of a reunified, peaceful Korean peninsula.
