Japan’s SixteenthCentury Invasion of
Korea and Attempt to
Conquer China
By Samuel Hawley

In May of 1592, Japanese dictator Toyotomi
Hideyoshi sent a 158,800-man army aboard
1,000 ships from Kyushu to Pusan on Korea’s
southern tip. His objective: to conquer Korea,
China, and all of Asia.
The Imjin War is the most comprehensive
account ever published in English about this
important event. It begins with a political and
cultural background of Korea, Japan, and China,
discusses the diplomatic breakdown that led to
the war, and describes every major incident
and battle from 1592 to 1598. It also introduces
a fascinating cast of characters along the way:
Hideyoshi, Korean admiral Yi Sun-sin, and
Chinese commander Zhao Chengxun. RASKB,

Challenged Identities chronicles five early
decades of North American missionary work in
Korea, giving readers a glimpse into missionaries’ profound struggle for cultural and spiritual
identity. Most missionaries could not assimilate
to their new home culture; a few did and came
away with a sharper perception of self and
society. RASKB, 2004, 6.25 x 9.25, B/W
