He demonstrates that, contrary to common perception, North Korea was not a realm of undisturbed Stalinism; Kim Il Song had to deal with a reformist opposition that was weak but present nevertheless." "Researched and cogently argued, Crisis in North Korea is a must-read for students and scholars of Korea and anyone interested in political leadership and personality cults, regime transition, and communist politics."--Jacket." ;
