The Rule of Law in South Korea ultimately makes a strong case for legal reform that promotes understanding and education on the importance of the individual, showing that not enough attention has been paid to the sanctity of the individual in the rule-of-law debate. Perhaps even more important, the book points out that education alone is not sufficient and that exemplary behavior from political leaders is essential to move forward toward the rule of law.
