"At a time when North Korean nuclear developments have created a crisis in world affairs, we are fortunate to have this thoughtful and provocative book. . . . [Harrison] covers a wide range of issues and much inside history, making this read . . . valuable."--Foreign Affairs

"At a time when North Korean nuclear developments have created a crisis in world affairs, we are fortunate to have this thoughtful and provocative book."--Lucian W. Pye, Foreign Affairs

From the Inside Flap

Harrison's fair-minded and well-researched book makes a timely contribution to American understanding of relations with North Korea. His reportage on North Korean points of view are gleaned from his years of first-hand contact. He uncovers much that has never appeared in print and clears up numerous misunderstandings. Accessible to anyone curious about foreign affairs, the book is a must-read for anyone interested in Korea or the region.

Format: Hardcover
I went into this book with the normal American preconceptions about North Korean stability and their aggressive track record. The author takes the time to lay out the reasons - and offers concrete steps for all sides that, if carried out, would end the Korean War once and for all. Significant research went into this book. I have yet to find a more well-researched and documented presentation on the historical and present state of Korea, and what it will take to finally declare the end of the war and reduce the $40B spent anually to drag it out.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For a long time I have been searching for a book that addresses the potentially explosive issue of Korea, and even more specifically North Korea. Is Kim Jong Il a madman? What is he seeking? For answers to these questions, and even more imporant ones, this is a book worth reading.

Because I served in Korea during the war, I am more than a little interested in what takes place there. Mr. Harrison's evenhanded account of events over the past few years gave me a better understanding of the Korean situation. If only certain elements in the US government gave this a read, I think all of us would benefit.

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By George R. Williams on December 31, 2012
Format: Paperback
The author writes nonsense when he asserts that the U.S. by its presence is responsible as an inhibiter to reunification. Removal of U.S. forces would only serve to tempt the DPRK to achieve unification by force. The Kim regime is in deep fear of philosophical contamination from the capitalist societies beyond it border because they maintain their power by use of absolute control. It has nothing to do with ROK alliances with the West. The prospective reader would do better than read a source written by a left wing reporter from the Washington Post by reading Victor Cha's "The Impossible State", a man who's made understanding North Korea his life's work.
