He emerged as the dominant leader in Koreas nationalist struggle against Japan and served as the first president of the Republic of Korea from 1948 through 1960. Rhees political career as founder and president, however, was not without controversy. While some hailed him as the George Washington of Korea, others regarded Rhee as a little Chiang Kai-shek. This first English translation of Rhees magnum opus, The Spirit of Independence (Tongnip chongsin), provides readers with an essential key to understanding the breadth and depth of Rhees thought at a critical juncture in his life and his countrys history.
