"This impressive work merits consideration by large public libraries and most academic libraries. Recommended. All readership levels."--Choice-- "Choice"
"To the surprise of many, North Korea still exists in spite of many policy failures. As Bruce Bechtol deftly details in his Defiant Failed State, North Korea has exercised its limited powers skillfully, in the process exposing the powerlessness of other states. As he also clearly explains, the end of the Kim Jong-Il regime may bring new surprises, ones for which the international community is seriously unprepared."--Richard C. Bush, Senior Fellow, The Brookings Institution--Richard C. Bush "Choice" (7/26/2010 12:00:00 AM)
