Connecticut Yankee Josh Gillet longed for high adventure and travel. Leaving late nineteenth century New England for a sojourn in Japan, Josh soon finds himself in the Hermit Kingdom-Korea. Coming of age is always filled with trial and tribulation. For Josh Gillet, intense life experiences are forged in an ancient land that has become the political chessboard for imperialist powers-amid a bold Protestant missionary movement and Anglo merchants with hopes of wealth. Josh quickly learns that high adventure, opportunity, and a budding romance come at a price as cultures collide.

In the closing years of the nineteenth century, East Asia saw traditional institutions erode under the weight of modernization, westernization, and imperialism. Unlike Japan, which by the late 1860s boldly embraced western thought and technology, Korea's orthodox Neo-Confucian elites resisted change. Trade agreements signed in the 1880s led to some reforms and the "opening" of Korea to the West. Soon China, Japan, Russia, France, Germany, and Great Britain vied for economic opportunity. Significantly, American missionaries and traders formed a core cadre among the foreigners who ventured to what the West called the Hermit Kingdom. Meanwhile, open conflict erupted on the peninsula between rival Japanese and Chinese forces. The outcome was substantial socio-economic transformation. By 1895, the Korean monarch King Kojong looked to align with the West to thwart ever-growing Japanese imperialism. King Kojong pursued a strategy of granting trade concessions to westerners in hopes that the investors would pressure their governments to support the monarchy and contain Japanese imperialism.The most successful of these concessions were granted to several Americans. By the early 1900s, the American-run Northern Frontier mines were among the richest in Asia. It is here, in what is today North Korea, that Connecticut-born Josh Gillet ventures and Book Three of A Yankee in the Land of the Morning Calm saga continues....

The book differs from most on Korean business. Frankly, its audience is not those working or looking to be employed in South Korea, although they will benefit from its content. The focus is instead for the ever-growing number of people employed by Korean-based companies outside South Korea. This book will provide you with a strategy and skills to succeed. Likewise, if your firm provides services or products to a South Korean overseas subsidiary or operations this book will be beneficial and offer tactics to strengthen and maintain the relationship. Finally, if your company has significant business in Korea, but leadership and headquarters is located in the West, we offer key management with suggestion on how best to deal with pressing issues and challenges that surface. About the author When Fortune 500 companies, top Korean Groups, leading international law firms, the media, and elite consultancies like Bain and Monitor look for Korean-facing branding, business strategy, coaching, market-entry, and advice-they turn to Don Southerton. With over 35 years' experience, Don Southerton is the definitive authority on Korean-facing global business and branding--from automotive, golf, and QSR/ food sectors to New Urbanism and Green technology. When questions surface in development, launch, or fulfillment, we provide sound research, solutions, Building on a life-long interest in Korea and the rich culture of the country, Southerton has authored numerous publications with topics centering on culture, new urbanism, entrepreneurialism, and early U.S.-Korean business ventures. Southerton also extensively writes and comments on modern Korean business culture and its impact on global organizations.

Intrepid Americans: Bold Koreans-Early Korean Trade, Concessions, And Entrepreneurship is a fascinating study of noteworthy interactions and significant events in the early development of U.S.-Korean relations. With relevancy in looking at contemporary South Korea, the reader will gain an understanding into how radically Korea's economy has transformed over the last century. Within the book, author Don Southerton provides captivating insights into the birth of modern South Korean entrepreneurialism and commerce. These glimpses presented through numerous photographs, illustrations, narratives, commentary, and comprehensive appendixes will give the reader a greater appreciation into the recent South Korean economic progress. A noteworthy feature of the book is the role played by American businessmen and Protestant missionaries on the peninsula. In fact, Southerton points out that Americans along with bringing new technology to Korea, heralded capitalism and promoted entrepreneurship-characteristics that reemerged in South Korea during the last quarter of the twentieth century and have spurred phenomenal economic and business development.
