Revised and updated book ‘Kim Jong-il: North Korea’s Dear Leader’ pre-order now available

Eight years since the first publication, this second edition includes updated information about Kim Jong Il's succession plans and the latest scoop on the talks of hindering North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

The book, written by an expert on Korean issues Michael Breen, tells the compelling story of Kim Jong-il and the country he leads. Illustrated with rare photographs of Kim Jong-il and his regime, it will give readers an unprecedented access to this little-understood North Korean leader and his people.

Among the interesting topics that this book explores is the pressing questions:

  • How he manages to hold onto power in a country that is ravaged by famine and poverty?
  • How Kim Jong-il was chosen?
  • How his people see him?
  • Submerging market: Looking in vain for signs of change

Very little is known of this country except for snippets of authorized photos from Kim's regime. This book aims to unravel the mysteries, myths and fallacies to entice even the harshest critics.
