5.0 out of 5 stars The One to read., 16 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Real North Korea: Life and Politics in the Failed Stalinist Utopia (Hardcover)
I have now read several books about North Korea and in my mind this is the one to read if you want to find the best one to clarify the questions I had in my mind such as--Do the N.Korean people really believe the stuff the Kim regime has been peddling all these years and ,if so, how come? This book perhaps did not tell me a lot new about the Kims but it did explain in more depth how their control has been maintained and it also opened my eyes to some very interesting aspects of S.Korea and its relationship to the North.Lankov ended with some predictions--which of course may not happen---about how the Kim regime may finally end and how other countries, especially USA, would best respond---depressingly he suggested that they almost certainly will not respond in a helpful way and I could myself see USA`s wrong-headed policy towards Cuba as a fair example of why that will probably be true.
