For South Koreans, the early 1960s to late 1970s were the best and worst of timesùa period of unprecedented economic growth and deepening political oppression. Carter J. Eckert finds the roots of this dramatic socioeconomic transformation in the countryÆs long history of militarization, personified in South KoreaÆs paramount leader, Park Chung Hee.
