Ch?ng Toj?n, one of the most influential thinkers in Korean history, played a leading role in the establishment of the Chos?n dynasty (1392-1910). Long recognized for his contributions to the development of Neo-Confucianism in Korea, Ch?ng was both a prodigious writer and an influential statesman before being murdered in a political coup. Seeking Order in a Tumultuous Age charts Ch?ng's rise to prominence amidst the turmoil of the late fourteenth century, when Korea struggled to come to terms with the political, military, and intellectual changes of an emerging new East Asian international order. In addition to providing a clear and accessible introduction to the broader world of fourteenth-century Korea, the book provides a fascinating window into Ch?ng as a person through annotated translations of his poetry, letters, and political writings-most of them previously unavailable in English.

Ch?ng's written works reveal a firm belief that Chinese classical traditions and recent intellectual developments on thecontinent contained vital lessons for Korea. The detailed annotations will allow readers to appreciate the wide variety of classical sources with which Ch?ng and his contemporaries were familiar and how these sources were applied to the times. Ch?ng had an unwavering faith in educated and engaged men as the preservers, interpreters, and implementers of such wisdom and was adamant that they should be given great power and authority in government.

Seeking Order in a Tumultuous Age will be welcomed by students and specialists of East Asian history and thought as well those wishing to learn more about a chaotic yet vibrant period in Korean history.
