Reviews from Goodreads:
"Though not entirely eye-opening to anyone with more than cursory knowledge of the regime over the past 65 years, this book is still a wealth of helpful information on nearly every aspect of the society of North Korea. Though I would like to find a history with more particular focus, I also know that the kind of data necessary would be difficult to obtain if not to compile."
Intellectual Takeout (ITO) blog review:
"This edition of North Korea: A Country Study replaces the previous edition, published in 1994. Like its predecessor, this study attempts to review the history and treat in a concise manner the dominant social, political, economic, and military aspects of contemporary North Korea. Sources of information included books, scholarly journals, foreign and domestic newspapers, official reports of governments and international organizations, and numerous periodicals and Web sites on Korean and East Asian affairs. A word of caution is necessary, however. Even though more information is forthcoming from and about North Korea since it became a member of the United Nations in 1991, the government of a closed society such as that of North Korea controls information for internal and external consumption, limiting both the scope of coverage and its dissemination.?"
