Summary
"The Guerilla Dynasty presents an accessible and up-to-date account of North Korea's political, economic and foreign policy since its foundation, with particular emphasis on the period 1980-1997. While day-to-day commentary and media coverage tend to highlight North Korea's reputation for bizarre and highly dangerous behaviour, and to emphasise that its internal and external policies are dysfunctional and counterproductive, The Guerilla Dynasty demonstrates that major North Korean state policies have been highly consistent over an extended period of time. Here is a revealing portrait of one of the most enigmatic societies in today's world, and one which continues to have a major impact on international politics."--Jacket
