North Korea’s Hidden Revolution – Jieun Baek

This was a great book on North Korea, far more encompassing than I expected. It aggregates many personal accounts into a cohesive but careful picture of life in North Korea today, focused especially on how foreign media is smuggled into the country. The policy and psychological analysis were truly fascinating, and I felt the author tried to present a balanced viewpoint while maintaining her thesis, that new information empowers long-term change. One of my favorite reads of the year so far!

    This is the sort of book I love reading. I am immediately going to look it up. I’m glad your posted so I’m aware of it. That’s an awkward sentence, but I don’t know how else to say it. Cheers. 🙂
