This "Festschrift" honours Geoffrey H. Moore's life-long contribution to the study of business cycles. After some analysts had concluded that business cycles were dead, renewed economic turbulence in the 1970s and 1980s brought new life to the subject. The study of business cycles now encompasses the global economic system, and this work aims to push back the frontiers of knowledge.
Since its original publication in 1993, this powerful collection has become the standard English language anthology of post-1945 Korean short fiction, a vivid gateway to the history, society, and culture of contemporary South Korea, reflecting the poignant motif of exile in Korea's experience of modernity. This new edition has been expanded to include four new stories - "Scarlet Fingernails" (1987) by Kim Minsuk; "The Last Hanak'o" (1992) by Ch'oe Yun, one of Korea's most important living writers; "Conviction"(2003) by Ch'oe Such'ol; and "From Powder to Powder" (2004) by Kim Hung - adding two important women's voices and extending the anthology's range into the new millennium. None of the stories in this expanded edition remains in print in any other volume, and "Conviction" and "From Powder to Powder" appear here in English for the first time.
