Chapter 2 outlines the transforming capitalist economy in rural Korea. It discusses how various nationalists and intellectuals responded to the agrarian crisis and saw rural Korea fitting into their visions of the ideal nation- state. This discursive description of the impact of capitalism on rural culture and society provides context for understanding why YMCA, Presbyterian, and Ch’ŏndogyo leaders created new faith- based social activist language and why the movements chose to focus their reconstruction efforts on the countryside.

Keywords:   capitalism, commodification, agriculture, rural life, locality, agrarianism, industrialization, bourgeois nationalists, Marxists
