Inhaltsangabe: This short book is an original work of considerable importance for a number of reasons. First, it sheds new light on S. Rhee's early years as a radical activist: the why he became a rabble-rouser against the decrepit Choson dynasty and the reasons he ended up spending many years in prison. Second, it details for the first time many aspects of Rhee's years in prison, including the process of conversion to Christianity and his energetic activities. It is a fascinating story based on materials in Chinese, English, Japanese, and Korean languages. Third, the author raises many important questions pertaining to modern Korean history. To name just a few: What were the possibilities and limitations of the reformist movement of the late 19th century? Did the Korean kingdom really have a chance to survive? Why did Rhee and others, who had such a favorable view of Japan, become such confirmed enemies of Japan?
