There is no more compelling subject to the Korean community and those who study it than the potentially treasonous issue of reunification. This text concentrates on the United States role, suggesting that a withdrawal of U.S. troops be used as vehicle for the neutralization and reunification of Korea. Chapter I points out the U.S. considerations to neutralize the Philippines. Chapter II gives a critical review on many missed opportunities for a neutralized Korea from the time of its opening to the time of its division after WWII. Chapter III examines some of the difficulties and complicated issues that arise in the attempt to unify and endeavors to point out a common denominator approach in possible neutralization. Chapter IV suggests that Washington now should reconsider the neutralization plan in exchange for its troop withdrawal.
