Hong-Key Yoon's book explores the nature of geomantic principles (fengshui) and the culture of practicing them in Korean cultural contexts. He clearly analyzes the nature and historical background of geomancy, the principles for selecting auspicious sites, and provides an extensive interpretation of geomantic principles as practiced in Korea. The impacts of geomancy on traditional cartography, religion, urban development, and finally iconographical warfare are all discussed in great detail.
