North Korea in Pictures (Visual Geography Series)by Alison Behnke
North Korea is a highly secretive nation whose leaders believe strongly in keeping the country closed to external influences, as well as in keeping hidden what goes on inside the nation. This isolation has led the nation to be misunderstood, mistrusted, and feared. At the same time, it allows the North Korean government to misrepresent the outside world to its own people. As this modern "Hermit Kingdom" moves into the future, it has many challenges ahead. But North Korea also has great resources to offer, from a rich history and culture to a deep national pride and an industrious populationresources that have, in some ways, been protected by many years of fierce privacy."
