North Korea : The Paranoid Peninsula: A Modern History Hardback
by Paul French
This reissue of Paul French's acclaimed introduction to North Korea provides an up-to-the-minute overview of the politics, economics and history of the DPRK, with added chapters dealing with recent events.
A new foreword examines why North Korea remains an issue in world politics and argues that an understanding of the country is more important now than ever.
A new in-depth postscript offers analysis of recent years, why Pyongyang felt compelled to test a bomb and revert to blatant nuclear diplomacy, and how the crisis can be resolved peacefully.
