Recensie(s)

This is the comprehensive briefing book that American negotiators needed to have prior to the tension filled negotiations over the DPRK's threats to withdraw from the NPT in 1993. It provides many of the missing pieces as part of the international effort to interpret the motives, determination, and level of know-how that have driven North Korea's past efforts to aquire nuclear capabilities. -Scott Snyder, Program Officer, Research and Studies Program, United States Institute of Peace The readers of this work will have a rare opportunity to learn the views of Russian specialists on North Korea and Russian policies toward Korea. To compare and contrast their diverse views with those of American specialists is enormously useful in seeking an understanding of the world's most enigmatic society. -Robert A. Scalapino, Robson Research Professor of Government Emeritus, Institute of East Asian Studies, University of California at Berkeley This book casts new light on asubject shrouded in misunderstanding-- North Korea's motives for harboring and then agreeing to abandon its nuclear ambitions. To judge from these often informative and perceptive essays, Russians could play a constructive role in ending the cold war on the Korean peninsula. -Leon V. Sigal, author of Disarming Strangers: Nuclear Diplomacy with North Korea This book must be read carefully by anyone interested in North Korean nuclear games and in the future of the whole Korean peninsula. -James Lilley, U.S. Ambassador to South Korea, 1986-1989 This book offers many new insights into the opaque North Korean decision-making process and casts light on why North Korea may be seeking nuclear weapons.American policy makers who fail to learn from the lessons gained by reading The North Korean Nuclear Program put both the United States and the East Asian region at risk. -Peter Hayes, Co-Director, Nautilus Institute for Security and SustainableDevelopment
