Description

Author of From Tokyo to Tiflis covering his personal experiences of the Russo-Japanese War, McKenzie was an accomplished writer and knew how to tell a good yarn. Yet in the context of today's socio-political changes on the peninsula and elsewhere the opportunity for a reappraisal of the Japanese occupation of Korea as observed in McKenzie's strident study The Tragedy of Korea could be seen to be both timely and relevant. First published in 1908 after some ten years' occupation of Korea by Japan (formal annexation as part of the Japanese empire announced in 1910).
