5 introduction · xxxi T H E D O M E S T IC CO N T E X T A fundamental rethinking of security is required if Korea is to find a way out of the present stalemate. Chapters 1 and 2 begin this task by analyzing the historical emergence of antagonistic identities and the manner in which they have become intertwined with contemporary security dilemmas. Much as Gregory Henderson described the essence of Korean politics as revolving around a “physics of centralization,”6 one could view identity as the key to understanding security on the peninsula.
