Abstract

In light of the political and economic transition currently facing the Republic of Korea (ROK), this paper investigates the history of press freedom in that country, in connection with economic growth and political history. The paper examines: (1) the development of newspapers in South Korea; (2) the role of the press in the early years of the republic; (3) the legacy and impact of President Park Chung Hee on the ROK's economic and social development; (4) the continuation of the dictatorship after Park by President Chun Doo Hwan; and (5) the new liberalization under President Roh Tae Woo. The paper concludes that the Korean press (functioning in a traditionally authoritarian society), in spite of years of press censorship and government control interspersed with brief periods of occasional liberalization, is not reluctant to be open and critical, and is willing to tackle taboo subjects. Eighty-three references conclude the paper. (SR)
