Product description

Review

Electrifying... finely argued and brilliantly written. --Christopher Hitchens, Slate

Provocative... A fascinating analysis. --Dwight Garner, The New York Times

A scary... close reading of domestic propaganda [that] goes a long way toward explaining the erratic behavior and seemingly bizarre thought processes of Dear Leader Kim Jong Il. --The Wall Street Journal
