Overview

North Korea's foreign policy behavior has long intrigued scholars, puzzled laymen, frustrated negotiators, and aggravated policy-makers.  This book brings together the work of ten of the world's foremost scholars and leading experts on North Korea to critically analyze the key factors and issues that are shaping North Korea's foreign policy behavior and its future direction.  Witnessing the rapid changes in North Korea's foreign policy environment, the contributors to this volume examine the implications for Pyongyang's foreign policy of the domestic challenges posed by the changing national identity and ideology, people's exiting of the country, economic stagnation, and the military-first politics.  They also offer insight into the impact of various external challenges on North Korea's foreign policy, such as China 'rising,' multilateralism, and leadership changes in the United States and South Korea, and asses Pyongyang's strategies for coping with these challenges.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“As Pyongyang undergoes an uncertain leadership transition and continues to confront the world over its nuclear weapons program, there has never been a more urgent need to understand North Korea than there is today. Park has brought together ten of the world's leading experts to look at the internal and external challenges facing North Korea from a variety of perspectives—economic, political, social, and historical. Insightful and timely, this is an outstanding collection on a topic of critical importance to the Northeast Asian region, and indeed to the international community as a whole.”—Charles K. Armstrong, Director, Center for Korean Research, Columbia University

“The analysis of North Korean foreign policy in recent decades presented in these essays combines a thorough account of changes in the DPRK domestic scene and the complex alterations in the international atmosphere. Thus, the reader benefits from an account that is both sophisticated and comprehensive. Differences of interpretation on some matters are inevitable, but given the reclusive nature of North Korea, the data presented here makes this a very valuable source for understanding both the essentials of DPRK policies and the abrupt changes that frequently take place in such policies. It should be read by both Asian specialists and those committed to international relations.”—Robert A. Scalapino, Robson Research Professor of Government Emeritus, Institute of East Asian Studies, University of California, Berkeley
