The Academy of Korean Studies Press has published a new translation by Center for Korean Studies faculty members of the Samguk Sagi (History of the Three Kingdoms) sections dealing with the history of KoguryÅ. The Samguk Sagi compiled by Kim Pusik, was completed in 1145 and is the oldest surviving account of the Three Kingdoms and Unified Silla eras of Korean history.
The new translation, The Koguryo Annals of the Samguk Sagi, is the work of Edward J. Shultz, interim dean of the School of Pacific and Asian Studies, and Hugh H.W. Kang, emeritus professor of history, with the collaboration of Daniel C. Kane, former UH Korea Collection librarian, and historian Kenneth J.H. Gardiner. Shultz and Kang are also completing a translation of the Silla annals from the Samguk Sagi, which will be published later this year.
