Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0745955983, Paperback)

North Korea, Asia's tragic and prodigal son, is long overdue returning to the embrace of the international community—if only the political and military powers have the courage to seize it

For 60 years North Korea has had neither war nor peace; simply an Armistice signed in 1953—it is this lack of resolution that has perpetuated instability, fear, and a risk of further tragedy. Behind the backdrop is the ever-present danger of a major conflict and this book suggests that there is a better way to relate to the pariah state. There are many issues to be addressed, including serious concerns over the grave, systematic, and widespread violation of human rights, reported executions, torture, violations of religious freedom, and humanitarian concerns. Although the obstacles are gigantic, there is still hope for a better future and this book argues that through patient but firm engagement, this situation is capable of resolution. Distinguishing between an antipathy toward a decaying political ideology and a love of the dignified and courageous Korean people must remain the central concern—one must encourage the tiny shoots of hope and, above all, build bridges through constructive, critical engagement.
