Overview

In her characteristically direct approach, political analyst Loretta Napoleoni takes on the vexed story--and threat--of North Korea for those of us in the West who remain blinded by its myths and bigotry.

Like China's Mao Zedong, Kim Il-Sung - North Korea's leader from its founding in 1948 until his death in 1996 - washed away the humiliation caused by Japanese colonisation and re-created an ancient nation. He consolidated and protected the country with strict principles of unity and isolation. His grandson Kim Jong-un is following in the footsteps of Chinese revolutionary politics by modernising the country using the economy as the main tool of transformation.

This short, informative book is an account of a country central to world politics and yet little understood. Further, it presents insider narratives of its people, whose self-image is radically different to the image we have of them.
