North Korea : Political, Economic & Social Issues Hardback

Edited by Marvin Harrison


This book provides information on the political, economic and social issues of North Korea.

Chapter One examines the satellite and missile programmes of North Korea in comparison with those of South Korea and Japan within the wider geopolitical context and US policy.

Chapter Two examines the potential of the Six-Party Talks (SPTs) and the prospects of their transformation into a multilateral security mechanism in Northeast Asia.

Chapter Three specifically analyzes the 2009 political crisis involving the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea involving the testing of nuclear capability, abduction, and eventual release, of American journalists, and UN imposition of sanctions against the DPKR between March and August of 2009, in an attempt to understand and identify the symbolic themes utilized in American domestic propaganda and their consequences on the public.

Chapter Four reviews information on therapeutically, as well as nutritionally important terrestrial arthropods in North Korea, and provides an examination of the idiomatic roles insects play in North Korean proverbs and sayings.
