Abstract

The Carter administration knew that the 12/12 incident that occurred in South Korea in 1979 was a coup d’etat that would hamper the country’s process of democratization. However, it did not take positive action to thwart it. According to the relevant materials, including declassified documents, the Carter administration detected the possibility of a coup d’etat in South Korea and de cursory efforts, including informing the South Korean government of such, what it actually implemented on December 12, 1979, and its stance in the period following the incident, was nothing more than passive adaptation to the altered situation. (The rest omitted)
