What People are Saying About This

Mark Franklin

"This book provides a long overdue, fresh look at a very old problem. Jacques' analysis and explanation of the juche ideology is one of the best in publication today, and correctly assess and aptly explains that any successful negotiation with North Korea will depend heavily on our understanding of how North Korea perceives the world through the juche philosophy. His prescription for resolving the North Korean nuclear dilemma is both tough and practical, and if implemented, could substantially move the U.S. forward in resolving our security concerns with this reclusive communist state. A must read for policy makers at all levels of government and for any student of northeast Asia security strategy."

Thomas C. Hubbard

"I heartily commend Jacques' work. His book could not be more timely in the wake of North Korea's recent nuclear weapons test. Jacques' well researched book should be must reading for the Bush administration as well as for serious students who have heard a lot about the North Korean situation but have had little opportunity to examine the facts on the ground."

John M. Frank

"Mr. Fuqua's work is not another recitation of the conventional wisdom about North Korea, often found in mainstream media. His unique book explains the reasons for current North Korean diplomatic and military issues and suggests what might be done to resolve these concerns."
