North Korea / South Korea: U.S. Policy at a Time of Crisis Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Korean peninsula, divided for more than fifty years, is stuck in a time warp. Millions of troops face one another along the Demilitarized Zone separating communist North Korea and capitalist South Korea. Inthe early 1990s and again in 2002-2003, the United States and its allies have gone to the brink of war with North Korea. Misinterpretations and misunderstandings are fueling the crisis. There is no country of comparablesignificance concerning which so many people are ignorant, American anthropologist Cornelius Osgood said of Korea some time ago. This ignorance may soon have fatal consequences.

North Korea, South Korea is ashort, accessible book about the history and political complexites of the Korean peninsula, one that explores practical alternatives to the current US policy: alternatives that build on the remarkable and historic path ofreconciliation that North and South embarked on in the 1990s and that point the way to eventual reunification.

Synopsis:

North Korea/South Korea is a short, accessible book about the history and politics of the Korean peninsula, with a focus on the U.S. presence. The first of four sections is a snapshot of the status quo. The second section establishes a political and economic context through an exploration of the history of the Korean peninsula, including the Korean War. The third section surveys the current regional political dynamic. The last section concentrates on the shift in emphasis in U.S. foreign policy from engagement under the Clinton administration to containment under the Bush administration. Feffer offers concrete proposals for U.S. policies that could help reduce tensions on the Korean peninsula.

John Feffer is the editor of Power Trip: U.S. Foreign Policy After September 11.
