THE CENTER FOR INFORMATION ON KOREAN CULTURE is, apparently, a new website created by the Academy of Korean Studies. I received four identical e-mail messages yesterday trumpeting the opening of the site. It appears to be, among other things, a clearinghouse for arguing the Korean line in the latest historical controversies. Note the happy news that a geography textbook in Indonesia now lists both "Sea of Japan" and "East Sea" as potential names for that body of water between Japan and Korea. There's plenty more where that comes from.
