      His central thesis is that North Korean leaders are not the irrational, fanatic despots that their public image would suggest. Billed as "part horror story, part historical document, part political tract". Lankov's analysis is particularly interesting, as so far it's the only report I've read on the country which was written by a scholar who actually lived there, and is not a refugee. Chairman, this Administration has worked closely with Congress as a partner in our broader policy toward the North, and will continue to do so.

      Lankov's analysis is particularly interesting, as so far it's the only report I've read on the country which was written by a scholar who actually lived there, and is not a refugee. The refugee-turned-activist tells her story in In Order to Live. While the Soviet Union can be considered a totalitarian state for much of its history, Lankov argues that the level of repression in North Korea was much higher, especially during the Kim Il-sung era - who, in Lankov's words, managed to out-Stalin Stalin himself. There is no question that much depends on North Korean intentions. The book was also been made in to a film Camp Total Control Zone. When people go to work, what they wear, the daily ritual of donning Kim Il-sung badges, and in his review Jonathan Steele said "it is refreshing then to find an author who is willing to approach the country soberly, analysing its tumultuous historyregional context and difficult relations with its allies.

      The article is long but well worth reading. Which was what? Recently tensions have ratcheted even higher, with continued nuclear tests and provocation by the Kim Jong-un regime. North Korea has no intention of starting any real conflict simply because it is not in the interest of its rulers - while its army is large in number it's relatively unsophisticated, and reliant on old equipment which is often obsolete by modern standards. Despite this, Kang noted that the North Korean political system is not devoid of reform-minded officials.
