The Impossible State: North Korea, Past and Future by Victor Cha

The Impossible StateA comprehensive history and examination of North Korea’s politics and culture in the 20th and 21st century by one of the USA’s lead scholars on the region, and George W. Bush’s adviser on North Korean affairs. Well written and an easy read despite the subject matter, very in-depth without being wordy or overly academic. Cha uses his experience to make what could otherwise be a dry and depressing account a colorful and insightful read.
