He documents the dissent among various social groups (intellectuals, students, party cadres) and their attempts to oust Kim in the unsuccessful "August plot" of 1956. His reconstruction of the Peng-Mikoyan visit of that year, the most dramatic Sino-Soviet intervention into Pyongyang politics, shows how it helped bring an end to purges of the opposition.

The final chapters of this fascinating and revealing study deal with events of the late 1950s that eventually led to Kim's version of "national Stalinism.""@en ;
