Abstract:

"This undercover report documents the stark poverty and extreme repression in North Korea that exist alongside spectacular cultural events and age-old customs unfettered by political ideology. Posing as a tourist, broadcast journalist [Channel One anchor] Janet Choi risked arrest to get an inside look at one of the planet's most secretive--and brutally totalitarian--countries while under surveillance by a police 'tour guide.' Archival footage, an interview with a defector, and commentary by Dr. Daniel Pinkston and Timothy McCarthy, both of the Center for Nonproliferation Studies, provide additional insights into the country's history, culture, military posture, and living conditions"--Container.
