The situation in North Korea is dangerous and complex. If you ever wondered how America came to be in a stand off with this hermit nation and why it is so difficult to find a way out, this is the book for you. On the geo-political stage, this countdown to conflict impacts and involves far more countries than the U.S. and North Korea. Once you know the history, people, leadership and lingering anger of North Korea and its allies, the situation becomes more clear...but finding a resolution becomes bleaker. The truth is disturbing, but it is important to know.
