Summary

A fascinating example of Neo-Confucian sage kingship is the figure of Y�ngjo, the eighteenth-century Korean monarch who was one of that nation's most illustrious yet most tragic rulers. In this book, JaHyun Kim Haboush provides an outstanding, dramatically realized introduction to traditional Korean culture through the story of Y�ngjo, offering profound insights into the complex interplay between Confucian rhetoric and the politics of the Yi monarchy. Originally published as A Heritage of Kings, this paperback edition contains a new preface reflecting advances in the field.
