    Isolated, secretive and ferociously repressive, North Korea has been at odds with the rest of the world for half a century. This definitive study charts the rise of the Kim dynasty and surveys the country's economy, its appalling human rights record, the endless war with its southern counterpart and the controversial nuclear programme. Authoritative, engagingly written and laced with anecdotes from the author's time in Pyongyang and as a White House advisor, it offers a rare glimpse inside this pariah state.
