Rüdiger  Frank - North Korea
 
 
 

 

Everyday life, economy, self-conception and politics of one of the most mystifying countries on earth

North Korea is the most isolated country on earth. Little news makes its way out of the state dictatorially ruled by the Kim clan, and anything that does is generally bad news: food scarcity, human rights violations, atomic weapons tests, arms trading, disagreements and clashes with South Korea. The ideological political conformity seems to be accepted uncomplainingly by the population.

Rüdiger Frank is one of the world's few experts on North Korea and regularly travels through the country. In this book, he describes its power structures and economic conditions, the way North Koreans see history and their everyday lives. Using his long experience, he also reports on the changes he has been able to observe in recent years and tries to make an inscrutable society easier for us to understand.

"In this very readable book is found in-depth background information and views well worthy of discussion from an unorthodox expert on this nation."
