KOREA TOMORROW

Report repeated from the September 15th bulletin, when scheduled for fall, as follows: ""Not a single subject or phase of all Korea and its 30,000,000 people is omitted or even visibly scanted in this present survey. The information is up-to-date, and to all intents without bias, and the cornucopia of detail and documentation render the volume an unsurpassed reference work. A partial list of the material contained would include geography; natural resources; scenic attractions; history and ethnic origins; sports; educational facilities and standards; music, literature, arts and handicrafts; agricultural implements, industrial installations; fishing craft; religion; broadcasting; telephone and postal systems; customs; labor relations; wild life; law, medicine; economy; psychology; and the workings and personalities of government to the south; the factions and conflicts in the divided country. The celerity and clean order of composition make the book intensely readable, and there are charts, photos, tables of transliterations. An indispensable item, particularly for libraries.
