Reading the first few pages, the author's ambition looks bold that it would immediately interest the reader, promising to offer with an original picture of transnational Korea that is already unified by capital p. However, the book does not fulfill its initial expectation. The book consists of eight chapters and conclusion, narrating different but relevant stories that are about the capitalist unconscious, migrant workers and transnational Korea.
Chapters are grouped in three parts; each part respectively puts forth concepts and interpretations which Park conjoins to "discern the dynamics of transnational Korea despite the important complexity of each history" of South Korea, North Korea and China p. Whereas Part I provides an overall theoretical framework for the book, Part II and III concern "three repertoires of democratic politics-reparation, peace and reconciliation, and human rights" that are crucial in forming and sustaining market utopia p.
Drawing upon interviews with more than migrant workers, film, primary and secondary sources, Park assertively illustrates sociopolitical meanings out of not only narratives but also "corporeal, sensorial, and temporal symbolizations" p. The book seems to be directly inspired by literary critic Frederic Jameson and his The Political Unconscious as she cited in the book. Park's dealing with two different unconscious sociopolitical and historical , especially in relation to the concept of socialism, might be misleading to the reader who has only basic knowledge about a modus operandi of sociology.

There are few grounds to array such figures as Carl Schmitt, Giorgio Agamben and Michel Foucault, without giving historical contexts of how their theories came out for the first time and feasible ways of reconfiguring them into an analytical tool for the transnational-Korean context, in order to conduct research Park aims to pursue. Second, the author's arbitrary and schematic uses of concepts are prevalent in the book. An unknown error has occurred.
