It is well written, concise, and to the point.

U.S. planners were embarrassed as the North's economy regularly outstripped the South's into the mid-70's.

Format: Paperback
Feffer gives an historical account of Korea and tires to show how much the US played a part in its history. It goes up through the dissolution of the agreed framework and attempts to explain Bush Sr., Clinton and Bush Jr's administration policies. Feffer does a reasonable job but constantly offers very opinionated views against the Bush administration that aren't very well thought out. I found the book interesting and informative and enjoyed reading it but my mind wouldn't allow me to believe everything he said because of the obvious agenda to discredit the current administration. The author does show that the North Korea's leader Kim Jong Il's isn't completely crazy and that there may be a small amount of logic to his leadership. Understanding DPRK's history gave me a more understanding view of their desperate situation of trying to survive in a world that has completely changed since the beginning of their State.

Format: Paperback
I enjoyed this book very much. It covers a wide variety of issues concerning U.S.-North Korea-South Korea relations. North Korea is a country we as Americans know so little about. This is a great introductory book to the U.S. policies towards North Korea and why even the U.S. Government's ally, South Korea doesn't agree with their policies. A definite must-read for anyone interested in International Affairs.

Format: Paperback
John Feffer's new book on US policy towards Korea is refreshing, honest and a critical contribution, particularly in these strange political times when foreign policy is being made in the dark. This book is a MUST READ for anyone who wants to understand US policy towards Korea, especially those working towards a peaceful resolution. Feffer clearly understands the importance of viewing U.S.-North Korea relations in a historical context and does a brilliant job outlining the key events. To top, Feffer is a talented writer with a fluid style that keeps the reader turning the pages.
