Product description

Uses extensive surveys with North Korean refugees now living in China or South Korea, to provide extraordinary insight into the changing pathways to power, wealth, and status within North Korea. These testimonies provide an invaluable interpretation of the regime, its motivations and its capabilities, and assess the situation on the ground, examining the rise of inequality, corruption, and disaffection in the decade since the 1990s famine.
