‘Peacemaker’ released in English

Lim Dong-won, former unification minister, recently held a seminar at the Asia-Pacific Research Center of Stanford University in conjunction with the U.S. release of his new memoir, “Peacemaker.”

As the architect of former President Kim Dae-jung’s Sunshine Policy of engaging North Korea, the 78-year-old shares in the book his experience and insight as both a witness of and participant in over 20 years of diplomatic negotiations with North Korea, from the initial rounds of inter-Korean talks to the historic inter-Korean Summit of June 2000.

The Korean-language release of “Peacemaker” came back in 2008 when the Lee Myung-bak administration took office. The English version has been published by the Asia-Pacific Research Center of Stanford University.

Former U.S. Secretary of Defense William Perry wrote the foreword for the English edition.

Following a 30-year career in the South Korean military, Lim held numerous key federal-level posts. He is currently chairman of the Korea Peace Forum.
