Description : Read Now Under The Loving Care Of The Fatherly Leader by Bradley K. Martin and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. under the loving care of the fatherly leader offers in-depth portraits of north korea's two ruthless and bizarrely orwellian leaders, kim il-sung and kim jong-il. lifting north korea's curtain of self-imposed isolation, this book will take readers inside a society, that to a westerner, will appear to be from another planet. subsisting on a diet short on food grains and long on lies, north koreans have been indoctrinated from birth to follow unquestioningly a father-son team of megalomaniacs. to north koreans, the kims are more than just leaders. kim il-sung is the country's leading novelist, philosopher, historian, educator, designer, literary critic, architect, general, farmer, and ping-pong trainer. radios are made so they can only be tuned to the official state frequency. "newspapers" are filled with endless columns of kim speeches and propaganda. and instead of christmas, north koreans celebrate kim's birthday--and he presents each child a present, just like santa. the regime that the kim dynasty has built remains technically at war with the united states nearly a half century after the armistice that halted actual fighting in the korean war. this fascinating and complete history takes full advantage of a great deal of source material that has only recently become available (some from archives in moscow and beijing), and brings the reader up to the tensions of the current day. for as this book will explain, north korea appears more and more to be the greatest threat among the axis of evil countries--with some defector testimony warning that kim jong-il has enough chemical weapons to wipe out the entire population of south korea.

Description : Read Now North Korea Through The Looking Glass by Kongdan Oh and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. fifty-five years after its founding at the dawn of the cold war, north korea remains a land of illusions. isolated and anachronistic, the country and its culture seem to be dominated exclusively by the official ideology of juche, which emphasizes national self-reliance, independence, and worship of the supreme leader, general kim jong il. yet this socialist utopian ideal is pursued with the calculations of international power politics. kim has transformed north korea into a militarized state, whose nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles, and continued threat to south korea have raised alarm worldwide. this paradoxical combination of cultural isolation and military-first policy has left the north korean people woefully deprived of the opportunity to advance socially and politically. the socialist economy, guided by political principles and bereft of international support, has collapsed. thousands, perhaps millions, have died of starvation. foreign trade has declined and the country's gross domestic product has recorded negative growth every year for a decade. yet rather than initiate the sort of market reforms that were implemented by other communist governments, north korean leaders have reverted to the economic policies of the 1950s: mass mobilization, concentration on heavy industry, and increased ideological indoctrination. although members of the political elite in pyongyang are acutely aware of their nation's domestic and foreign problems, they are plagued by fear and policy paralysis. north korea through the looking glass sheds new light on this remote and peculiar country. drawing on more than ten years of research—including interviews with two dozen north koreans who made the painful decision to defect from their homeland—kongdan oh and ralph c. hassig explore what the leadership and the masses believe about their current predicament. through dual themes of persistence and illusion, they explore north korea's stubborn adherence to policies that have failed to serve the welfare of the people and, consequently, threaten the future of the regime. featuring twenty-nine rare and candid photos taken from within the closely guarded country, north korea through the looking glass illuminates the human society of a country too often mischaracterized for its drab uniformity—not a "state," but a community of twenty million individuals who have, through no fault of their own, fallen on exceedingly hard times.

Description : Read Now In Order To Live by Yeonmi Park and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. “i am most grateful for two things: that i was born in north korea, and that i escaped from north korea.” yeonmi park has told the harrowing story of her escape from north korea as a child many times, but never before has she revealed the most intimate and devastating details of the repressive society she was raised in and the enormous price she paid to escape. park’s family was loving and close-knit, but life in north korea was brutal, practically medieval. park would regularly go without food and was made to believe that, kim jong il, the country’s dictator, could read her mind. after her father was imprisoned and tortured by the regime for trading on the black-market, a risk he took in order to provide for his wife and two young daughters, yeonmi and her family were branded as criminals and forced to the cruel margins of north korean society. with thirteen-year-old park suffering from a botched appendectomy and weighing a mere sixty pounds, she and her mother were smuggled across the border into china. i wasn’t dreaming of freedom when i escaped from north korea. i didn’t even know what it meant to be free. all i knew was that if my family stayed behind, we would probably die—from starvation, from disease, from the inhuman conditions of a prison labor camp. the hunger had become unbearable; i was willing to risk my life for the promise of a bowl of rice. but there was more to our journey than our own survival. my mother and i were searching for my older sister, eunmi, who had left for china a few days earlier and had not been heard from since. park knew the journey would be difficult, but could not have imagined the extent of the hardship to come. those years in china cost park her childhood, and nearly her life. by the time she and her mother made their way to south korea two years later, her father was dead and her sister was still missing. before now, only her mother knew what really happened between the time they crossed the yalu river into china and when they followed the stars through the frigid gobi desert to freedom. as she writes, “i convinced myself that a lot of what i had experienced never happened. i taught myself to forget the rest.” in in order to live, park shines a light not just into the darkest corners of life in north korea, describing the deprivation and deception she endured and which millions of north korean people continue to endure to this day, but also onto her own most painful and difficult memories. she tells with bravery and dignity for the first time the story of how she and her mother were betrayed and sold into sexual slavery in china and forced to suffer terrible psychological and physical hardship before they finally made their way to seoul, south korea—and to freedom. still in her early twenties, yeonmi park has lived through experiences that few people of any age will ever know—and most people would never recover from. park confronts her past with a startling resilience, refusing to be defeated or defined by the circumstances of her former life in north korea and china. in spite of everything, she has never stopped being proud of where she is from, and never stopped striving for a better life. indeed, today she is a human rights activist working determinedly to bring attention to the oppression taking place in her home country. park’s testimony is rare, edifying, and terribly important, and the story she tells in in order to live is heartbreaking and unimaginable, but never without hope. her voice is riveting and dignified. this is the human spirit at its most indomitable.
