The North Korean revolution, 1945-1950 by Charles K Armstrong ( Book )
12 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"North Korea, despite a shattered economy and a populace suffering from widespread hunger, has outlived repeated forecasts of its imminent demise. Charles K. Armstrong contends that a major source of North Korea's strength and resiliency, as well as of its flaws and shortcomings, lies in the poorly understood origins of its system of government. He examines the genesis of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) both as an important yet rarely studied example of a communist state and as part of modern Korean history."--BOOK JACKET
Tyranny of the weak : North Korea and the world, 1950-1992 by Charles K Armstrong ( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the invasion that set off the Korean War in June 1950 to the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Armstrong shows how, despite its objective weakness, North Korea has managed for much of its history to deal with the outside world to its maximum advantage. Insisting on a path of "self-reliance" since the 1950s, North Korea has continually resisted pressure to change from enemies and allies alike. A worldview formed in the crucible of the Korean War and Cold War still maintains a powerful hold on North Korea in the twenty-first century, and understanding those historical forces is as urgent today as it was sixty years ago

What is it like on the other side of the 38th parallel? How do Koreans in the North view this past decade -- the fall of Soviet communism, natural disasters that brought famine and power shortages, and a continued, dangerously hostile relationship with the United States? And what are the concerns of the Korean American community -- many of whom have family in the North?

A state of mind by Daniel Gordon ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 2003, as the United States confronts North Korea over its impending resumption of nuclear weapons production, North Koreans prepare to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their supposed "victory" over the South in the Korean War. This documentary tells the story of two teenage girls, Pak Hyon Sun and Kim Song Yon, and their families as the girls prepare to participate in this year's Mass Games, an intricately choreographed display of dancers, acrobats, and karate-chopping soldiers, celebrating North Korea's statehood and revolutionary zeal in one of the last surviving Communist showcase pageants. North Koreans rehearse for millions of hours in preparation for this unique extravaganza. The girls and their schoolmates practice their routines in Kim Il Sung Square, their diligent efforts leading toward an awe-inspiring public performance. This film yields surprising insights into family life and daily activity in the little known world of the "hermit kingdom." Includes an interview with Charles Armstrong of Columbia University
