From its introduction in the early-twentieth century during the National Liberation Movement to its influence on contemporary politics and culture, anarchism has had a deep, historical significance in Korea. Tigers Unchained explores that significance through lenses that are simultaneously political, cultural, historical, and aesthetic. This translation constitutes a major contribution to multiple fields, while providing new ways to think about a divided peninsula on which two oppressive and militarized Koreas confront one another.

Gu Seung-hoe received his PhD in Philosophy from Darmstadt University of Technology and was Professor in the Department of Ethics and Culture at Dongguk University. His published works include Eco-Philosophy (1995) and A Defence of Humanism (2002).

Ed Venables studied Philosophy & Psychology at the University of Edinburgh, then before moving to South Korea. He has a degree in Korean language and culture from Keimyung University, and has previously worked as a translator for the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul.
