Summary: The Historical Dictionary of Democratic People's Republic of Korea provides a clear and easily understood history of the DPRK, also known as North Korea. It examines the historic roots of the country from the 1800s up to the death of Kim Jong Il. There are factual essays on leaders such as Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, as well as some of their supporters and opponents, on organizations such as the Korean Worker's Party, the Supreme People's Assembly (parliament), and on the lives and livelihood of the people. Issues such as the DPRK nuclear and missile programs are also explained. This reference includes a detailed chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, an extensive bibliography, and over 300 cross-referenced dictionary entries on important personalities, leading political figures, institutions, economic enterprises, ethnic communities, and cultural features. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
