North Korea : State of Paranoia
by Paul French


Overview - Secretive, mysterious, and almost certainly dangerous, North Korea is an object of endless fascination--and worry--for the rest of the world. The world's most inaccessible nuclear power, it retains Gulag-style prison camps, completely blocks Internet access, and forbids citizens to talk to foreigners without approval--which makes the occasional report from a smart, dogged, connected analyst all the more valuable.  Read more...

Overview
Secretive, mysterious, and almost certainly dangerous, North Korea is an object of endless fascination--and worry--for the rest of the world. The world's most inaccessible nuclear power, it retains Gulag-style prison camps, completely blocks Internet access, and forbids citizens to talk to foreigners without approval--which makes the occasional report from a smart, dogged, connected analyst all the more valuable.

North Korea: State of Paranoia is just such a report. Drawing on an impressive range of insider sources and previously unseen archival material, Paul French examines the nation and its ruling regime in forensic detail. He offers a close analysis of the history and politics of North Korea; Pyongyang's complex relations with South Korea, Japan, China, and the United States; and the troubling implications of Kim Jong-Un's increasingly belligerent leadership in the years since his father, Kim Jong-il, died.

Straightforward and unsensationalistic, North Korea nonetheless paints a picture of a frightening unstable country, one whose sudden collapse could have globally dangerous consequences.
