About This Book

This book offers in-depth portraits of North Korea's ruthless and bizarrely Orwellian leaders, Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il. North Koreans have been indoctrinated from infancy to follow unquestioningly a father-son team of despots. Lifting Pyongyang's curtain of self-imposed isolation, this book takes readers inside a society that to an outsider may appear to be from another planet. This fascinating, comprehensive work of history and reportage takes advantage of source material that has only recently become available (some from archives in Moscow and Beijing) to bring the reader up to date on the tensions of today. More than a decade in the making, this book will for years to come, define a Spartan and stubbornly enigmatic society.
