Abstract:

Peter Berkowitz traveled to Seoul, South Korea, where he was to spend a week teaching The Federalist to students at Yonsei University’s Underwood International College, South Korea’s only four-year English-language undergraduate degree program. While there, Berkowitz tried to find out how South Korean students and university professors think about freedom and democracy, and their attitudes toward the United States.
