The Cleanest Race: A Briefing on North Korea by B.R. Myers
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Much hearsay surrounds North Korea and the intentions of Kim Jong-il. But B.R. Myers, an analyst of North Korean politics, argues that much of this 'knowledge' is wrong, maintaining that there is more discourse on North Korea's nuclear programme than on the motivation behind it. Drawing on decades worth of research on Worker's Party ideology and propaganda, Myers shows how Kim Jong-il's regime is guided by a paranoid, race-based nationalism with roots in Japanese fascist thought.
