Product description


In North Korea’s Military-Diplomatic Campaigns, 1966-2008, Dr. Narushige Michishita provides a unique, refreshing and extremely well researched study of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) idiosyncratic military/political strategies and doctrines. . . . Dr. Michishita’s book is highly recommended to both the serious student of the DPRK and the general reader interested in gaining a better understanding of this dangerous and volatile nation. -Joseph S. Bermudez, Jr., author of The Armed Forces of North Korea and A History of Ballistic Missile Development in the DPRK

Michishita dissects four decades of North Korean military adventurism to demonstrate Pyongyang’s consistent and calculated use of military tools to advance strategic objectives vis-à-vis its adversaries. Rather than being irrational or unpredictable, North Korea emerges in these pages as a proactive but no less dangerous actor in the international system. Michishita’s scholarship is compelling and important.- Michael J. Green, Former Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs and Senior Director for Asia, National Security Council

It is an excellent, comprehensive and important addition to the literature on North Korean policies and actions. It sheds new light on many disputed episodes, to the benefit of scholars, journalists and interested citizens. - Don Oberdorfer, a Distinguished Journalist in Residence at Johns Hopkins University’s Nitze School of Advanced International Studies and the author of The Two Koreas: A Contemporary History

Thinking that a second Korean War is all but improbable, we are often guilty of downplaying North Korea’s military activities. Fortunately, Narushige Michishita has undertaken a comprehensive study of Pyongyang’s military-diplomatic campaigns, providing the analysis and linkage to North Korea’s overall foreign policy objectives. The case studies he cites are rich with detail and provide the critical element in understanding what otherwise might appear as random, unconnected acts of military adventurism by Pyongyang. Michishita’s North Korea’s Military-Diplomatic Campaigns, 1966-2008 is a valuable resource negotiators and scholars alike should have. - Charles L. (Jack) Pritchard, former ambassador and special envoy for negotiations with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the author of Failed Diplomacy: The Tragic Story of How North Korea Got the Bomb
