Abstract:

North Korea has remained shrouded from the rest of the world throughout its 50-year history. It's only two leaders, Kim Il Sung and his son, Kim Jong Il, have fashioned a dictatorial cult that subjects its citizens to lives of crushing poverty and want. The recollections of people who have escaped the regime, including one of Kim Jong Il's former bodyguards, paint a dark portrait of a place where the leader is revered as a God, where a deadly famine has claimed three million lives, where citizens' rights and freedoms are restricted, and of a brutal gulag system where many are unjustly imprisoned.
