Moving walls are generally represented in years.

Since the end of the Cold War, scholars and analysts have been predicting the collapse of the communist regime in North Korea. Yet, despite a deteriorating economy characterized by declining industrial output, outdated technology, and difficulty feeding its people, the country has been able to persist and continues to plod along. How has North Korea been able to survive, and how long can it last without significant change to its economic and political structures? How can we peacefully resolve the North Korean nuclear standoff through constructive dialogue?


This book examines North Korea's survival strategy and offers practical solutions to a 50-year nuclear standoff through a series of essays written by 15 of the world's foremost scholars and leading experts on strategy, economics and international relations. It is essential reading for anyone interested in peace in Northeast Asia and will be invaluable in helping policy-makers, diplomats, politicians, researchers and other North Korea watchers to understand three closely related issues about North Korea: (1) why North Korea will continue to survive; (2) how the United States and North Korea can build a mutual confidence; and (3) why a dialogue is the only viable way to resolve the North Korea problem peacefully.

"The media is full of pundits predicting the imminent collapse of North Korea. To date, North Korea has proven them wrong, year after year. This is the first book to explain systematically why North Korea has endured against all odds. It also shows why, in spite of the efforts of the greatest powers on Earth to force it to abandon its nuclear weapons program, it has refused to capitulate and has instead pursued its own path to become nuclear-armed. Given the complicated nature of the international conflict focused on and in Korea, no book can provide a decisive answer to why North Korea survived. But with its many carefully interwoven threads of argument and evidence, this book provides the reader with insight into the full complexity of the Korean conflict. The book reflects the urgency of ending the standoff on the Peninsula and of avoiding a war that could easily escalate into a catastrophic, nuclear war "

This book is both an invaluable resource for the serious scholar and a worthwhile read for the curious reader interested in learning more about North Korean issues. The essays contain valuable information from a variety of disciplines and new perspectives on the cause of, and possible solutions for, this long standing foreign policy challenge.

The text is very well organized and readable, even for those with little or no background in such matters. I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it.

The Survival of North Korea

Edited by Kim Suk-hi, Terence Roehrig and Bernhard Seliger; McFarland & Co. Inc., Publishers: 264 pp., $35

A massive amount of literature has been produced in past decades to describe doomsday theories for North Korea. But the secretive state continues to defy declining its industrial output, lagging technology and food shortages to refute apocalypse and extend the Stalinist nightmare.

In articles that collectively provide a compact overview on North Korea's political system, economic health and foreign relations status, the authors argue that the country is unlikely to implode in the near future, considering the role played by the country's historical and cultural factors and "military first" policy.

They provide an interesting take on the fallacies of the collapse scenarios, employed in particular by Western observers, but why they remain as the dominant opinion, and how this has affected the U.S.'s strategy on North Korea.

The book also attempts to provide broader perspective on North Korea's relentless pursuit of nuclear-weapons program despite international pressures, and assesses the policy challenges posed by the survival or demise of a nuclear North.
