Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: George W. Bush's infamous remark about the 'Axis of Evil' brought North Korea back into the international spotlight in a dramatic fashion. After years of forging links with America and its allies, North Korea declared in October 2000 that its 'arduous march' -- years of crisis and famine -- was over. Yet with the election of Bush, it is once again outlawed as a 'rogue' state, and hopes for resumption of diplomatic relations with the US appear to be dashed. Though malnutrition has eased and the economy is growing, the outlook is bleak. This book seeks to demystify North Korea by cutting through the propaganda to unearth the complex and contradictory realities of this unique country. The North is not a 'workers' paradise' but neither is it a threat to its neighbours and the world. The once vigorous economy was devastated by the collapse of the Soviet Union and now its main foreign policy objective, and the key to its economic rehabilitation, is normalisation of relations with the United States. But not normalisation at the expense of independence. Tim Beal reveals a country overburdened by military spending that sees itself under constant threat. However, he also reveals how North Korea has opened to the world in recent years, establishing diplomatic relations with the West and trying to break free of foreign aid. Exploring a broad range of subjects including the historical and political framework through 1990s to today, the economic challenges in agriculture, tourism, energy, transport and information technology, as well as its relationship with South Korea, this is an ideal book for anyone who wants a thorough introduction to the remarkable challenges this country faces.
