Comparative studies on North and South Korean textbooks

As we discussed in class, there are different versions of histories from a single past. Even in the Korean society, we koreans talk about history based on a variety of interpretations and opinions. I just found an interesting article relevant to our topic this week. Dennis Hart compared historical interpretation in NOrth and South Korea in "Remember the Nation: construction of the March First Movement in the North and South Korean history textbooks"
I am very concerned about the future of Korea after reunification is realized.
