KIM DAE-JUNG. Book signed in Korean on inside cover, 40p, 5½x9¾, softcover. His book, Prison Writings, The Kim Dae-jung Peace Foundation for the Asia-Pacific Region, 2001 August. The book contains reflections on a variety of Western philosophers, including Plato, Rousseau and Nietszche, as well as a prayer offered to Jesus (Kim converted to Christianity in 1957). Kim Dae-jung (1924-2009), a long-time campaigner for democracy and human rights, made his first run for President of South Korea in 1971.  Enduring years of exile, imprisonment and attempted assassinations, he was finally elected President in 1998, serving until 2003. An advocate of a "sunshine policy" to improve relations with North Korea, he held a historic summit meeting with the North's leader, Kim Jong Il, in 2000, and received the Nobel Peace Prize later that year. By the end of his term, Dae-jung's popularity had declined sharply as a result of economic problems, corruption charges and lack of positive results from the approach to North Korea, and his party lost the 2003 election. However, a recent poll of 500 South Korean academics appraised Kim highly, ranking him second overall among the nation's nine Presidents. Ironically, he was ranked behind his old nemesis, the authoritarian but effective Park Chung Hee. Fine condition.
