Ask A North Korean sheds critical light on all aspects of North Korean politics and society and shows that, even in the world's most authoritarian regime, life goes on in ways that are very different from what outsiders may think. Begin to understand North Korea through the eyes of those who know it bestits defectors.

Recensioner i media

"North Korea regularly dominates the headlines, but rarely do outsiders hear the perspective of its people. Ask a North Korean is a welcome remedy. Fascinating and insightful." --Bryan Harris, Financial Times correspondent in Seoul "Ask A North Korean gives valuable insight into how former North Koreans see themselves, their changing country and its place in the world." --Andray Abrahamian, Chosun Exchange "With North Korea once more in the news, this book will enable readers to empathize with a people often forgotten as a result of the bellicosity of their government." --Publishers Weekly
