The Impossible State: North Korea, Past and Future (英語) ハードカバー – イラスト付き, 2012/4/3
“An up-close, insightful portrait. . . . The Impossible State is a clearheaded, bold examination of North Korea and its future.” -- Washington Post
“Cha demonstrates an intimate familiarity with the regime’s contradictions. . . . The thesis is clear: the world’s most closed-off state needs to open up to survive, but breaking its hermetic seal may well precipitate its demise.” -- The New Yorker
Victor Cha served in the White House as Director for Asian Affairs at the National Security Council from 2004 to 2007. He currently holds the D. S. Song-KF Chair in Government and Asian Studies at Georgetown University and is a senior adviser at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C.
I would not have known half the things included in the book. A must for those interested in the relationship between N. Korea and it's neighbours, and the rest of the world!
