This work offers a closely observed and illuminating "diplomacy thriller" about Jimmy Carter, North Korea, the Clinton White House and how disaster was averted in 1994. In "A Moment of Crisis", career diplomat, Emory University Professor and former Carter Center programme director, Marion V Creekmore details how Jimmy Carter's dramatic intervention helped to resolve the 1994 North Korean nuclear crisis and prevent what Carter had determined was an almost certain war. Developed with the cooperation of President Carter and drawing on a large amount of primary source material that has never been used before, Creekmore, who accompanied Carter into North Korea, delivers a gripping narrative of the former President on one of his most remarkable missions, a clear-eyed investigation into the controversies and successes of the missions and others like it, and an illuminating look at how to best handle North Korea and other "rogue regimes".show more
