Music in Korea
by Donna Lee Kwon

This is a more recent book in Oxford's Global Music Series, and it is one of the best in the series. Kwon covers a lot of ground, examining both traditional and popular music from the 18th century through the early 21st. She also provides information on North Korean music, although the book necessarily focuses more on South Korean music. Kwon provides plenty of information and a wealth of exercises and activites, but Music in Korea never feels dense or overstuffed. My only criticism is that several of the activities are more appropriate for a class or study group and are thus awkward for someone working through the material on their own.

As a side note, I am pretty sure that author was a grad student at Wesleyan while I was getting my undergraduate degree there.
