Introduction to Article on South Korea

Korea is to-day a country of 50 million people, strategically located, and a focus of interest for all the major powers. Up to 1945 the country was a plundered colony of imperial Japan, and the Japanese have rebuilt a powerful position in the southern part of Korea. 40,000 us troops under a un guise are still in South Korea, flanked by contingents from Britain, Turkey and Thailand, also under the un flag.
