A book too long not read

by jakobwasi on Feb 23, 2012

Even though Cuming's 'North Korea: another country' appeared eight years ago, it should be on the reading list of the White House, department of state, and Congress. Cuming's is not welcome among the 'bien pesants' camp followers that the government funds; he sharply, but critically, faults US policy towards the DPRK, and believes that it is off track. In a Council on Foreign Relations' special report on Korea, all the leading scholars, diplomats, and the like unanimously agreed on 'rolling back North Korea'. Their position is an admission of intellectual bankruptcy if they have to go back 60 years to the early Cold War. They simply admit that they fail to understand the DPRK. Cumings doesn't.
