Katharine Moon’s new book, Protesting America: Democracy and the U.S.-Korea Alliance (University of California Press/GAIA, 2013), illustrates how democracy has given rise to Korean civil society activism around the politics of the bilateral alliance and U.S. overseas bases. It also addresses ways in which new institutional and procedural adaptations are needed to improve the management of the alliance.

Katharine H.S. Moon is Professor of Political Science and Asian Studies at Wellesley College.  She is an Associate Fellow at the Asia Society;  a non-resident Fellow with the Brookings Institution; and is on the US National Committee on North Korea.

She is an expert on the U.S.-Korea alliance and comparative social movements in East Asia  (democratization, women's movements, migrant workers, human rights); migration and identity politics; nationalisms in East Asia; gender in international relations; Korean-Americans and U.S. foreign policy; and socio-political changes in North Korea.
