An article from Starbulletin, January 6, 2010

2. Professor Minsun Kim’s new book (coauthored) : “Changing Korea: Understanding Culture and Communication”: Peter Lang Publishing (2008)
In the last 50 years, Korea has transformed itself from an agrarian, Confucian-based culture into a global, technological powerhouse, and one of the most important political and economic forces in the world. Based on previous research and face-to-face interviews, the book shows how contemporary Koreans negotiate traditional Confucian values and Western capitalistic values in their everyday encounters–particularly in business and professional contexts. This is a useful companion book for courses in international business, intercultural communication, and Asian studies.
Min-Sun Kim is Professor in the Department of Speech at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. She has authored more than 50 articles and is author of “Non-western perspectives on Human Communication: Implications for theory and practice” (2002). Her most recent work is in the area of cultural relativity of communication theories. She is the past Chair of the Intercultural Communication Division of the International Communication Association.
