In seven fascinating chapters the authors explore what life is actually like in modern North Korea today for the ordinary “man and woman on the street.” They interview experts and tap a broad variety of sources to bring a startling new insider’s view of North Korean society—from members of Pyongyang’s ruling families to defectors from different periods and regions, to diplomats and NGOs with years of experience in the country, to cross-border traders from neighboring China, and textual accounts appearing in English, Korean and Chinese sources. The resulting stories reveal the horror as well as the innovation and humor which abound in this fascinating country. Author: Daniel Tudor (Pub: Periplus Editions, April 2015, HC, 224 pp, 32 pages of rarely seen color images, 5 1/8 x 8 in)
