Books I have written

Four of the 15 books I have written have been co-authored (numbers 4, 6, 7, 9, and 14 in the list below) and four of them are collections of previous published articles and book chapters (numbers 2, 5, 8, and 10).

10 of the 15 books were published in English first. By the end of 2015, between them, they will have been translated in 37 languages (Arabic, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese [classical], Chinese [simplified], Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Eritrean, Esperanto, Estonian, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Mongolian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, and Vietnamese) in 40 countries (Argentina, Bulgaria, Brazil, China, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Eritrea, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Iran, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Latvia, Mexico, Mongolia, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, the UK, the USA, and Vietnam).

Three of my books are available only in Korean (numbers 8, 9, and 14) and one of them only in Spanish, although this is a collection of articles first published in English (number 2).

Two of the books (numbers 6 and 10) are really policy pamphlets, rather than full-blown books, but I think they are substantial enough to qualify as the equivalent of novella in the literary world.

Six of my books have been written for the general reader (numbers 8, 9, 12, 13, 14, and 15). You won’t be able to read three of these books unless you read Korean (numbers 8, 9, and 14).
