This comprehensive work links the personal experiences of Kim Il-Sung and the fifty-year history of his regime to the quest of the Democratic Peoples’ Republic of Korea (DPRK) for nuclear weapons. It examines the mix of dependence, defiance, and alienation that has characterized North Korea's relations with its neighbors and the United States. The concluding chapters focus on challenges faced by Kim Il-Sung and his successor, Kim Jong-il, in their attempts to achieve and sustain strategic autonomy and the role of nuclear weapons in those efforts. The book was published before Kim Jong-eun succeeded Kim Jong-il in December 2011.
