Since the end of the Cold War, scholars and analysts have been predicting the collapse of the communist regime in North Korea. Yet, despite a deteriorating economy characterized by declining industrial output, outdated technology, and difficulty feeding its people, the country has been able to persist and continues to plod along. How has North Korea been able to survive, and how long can it last without significant change to its economic and political structures? How can we peacefully resolve the North Korean nuclear standoff through constructive dialogue? This book examines North Korea’s survival strategy and offers practical solutions to a 50–year nuclear standoff through a series of essays written by 15 of the world’s foremost scholars and leading experts on strategy, economics and international relations. It is essential reading for anyone interested in peace in Northeast Asia and will be invaluable in helping policy-makers, diplomats, politicians, researchers and other North Korea watchers to understand three closely related issues about North Korea: (1) why North Korea will continue to survive; (2) how the United States and North Korea can build a mutual confidence; and (3) why a dialogue is the only viable way to resolve the North Korea problem peacefully.

"Ethnic Solidarity for Economic Survival: Korean Greengrocers in New York City is an exemplary contribution to the literature on international migration, Asian American studies, ethnic economies, and ethnic conflict. It advances our understanding of the social position of Korean American business owners from the early 1990s to the present and in so doing provides a timely portrait of contemporary conditions in urban America."---Journal Of Asian American Studies "Min has provided a highly readable account of how Korean business owners collectively handle their relationships with other ethnic groups. It reminds us that the study of ethnic businesses should also explore their collective activities."---American Journal Of Sociology "In Ethnic Solidarity for Economic Survival, Pyong Gap Min draws on ethnography, in-depth interviews, survey research and an analysis of the ethnic and mainstream press between the 1980s and the present to explore a paradigmatic case of immigrant entrepreneurship---that of Korean greengrocers in New York. Min's research shows how the entrepreneurs relied on high levels of ethnic solidarity to address their conflicts with white suppliers, black customers, and government agencies. Once conflicts subsided, so did levels of ethnic solidarity. This elegantly theorized book adds considerably to our understanding of the Korean-American experience, ethnic entrepreneurship, and contemporary urban America."---Steven J. Gold, professor, graduate program director, and associate chair, Department of Sociology, Michigan State University "Pyong Gap Min's Ethnic Solidarity for Economic Survival returns to and amplifies our knowledge of the celebrated black-Korean economic conflicts of the early 1990s in New York City. Here finally is the scholarly follow-up that explains why those ethnic conflicts ended. However, Min's richly detailed book also disperses persistent misunderstandings of the whole era by showing that Korean immigrant entrepreneurs had collective conflicts with whites and Latinos as well as blacks in that stormy period, in explaining all this, with very rich evidence, Min criticizes a social science community that has paid lip service to the role of ethnic organizations without empirically examining that role....Min depicts a gritty ethic entrepreneurship as it is, not as it's supposed to be."---Ivan Light, professor of sociology. University of California, Los Angeles "Based on more than fifteen years of fieldwork in New York City, indepth surveys, and secondary sources (census data, newspapers), Min has written the definitive social history of Korean small businesses and their struggles and also breathed new life into middleman minority theory. Ethnic Solidarity for Economic Survival will be required reading for scholars and student in immigrant and ethic studies and also in economic sociology."---Charles Hirschman, Boeing International Professsor of Sociology and Public Affairs, University of Washington

Featuring contributions by some of the leading experts in Korean studies, this book examines the political content of Kim Jong-Il's regime maintenance, including both the domestic strategy for regime survival and North Korea's foreign relations with South Korea, Russia, China, Japan, and the United States. It considers how and why the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) became a "hermit kingdom" in the name of Juche (self-reliance) ideology, and the potential for the barriers of isolationism to endure. This up-to-date analysis of the DPRK's domestic and external policy linkages also includes a discussion of the ongoing North Korean nuclear standoff in the region.

어서 와, 한국 대학생활은 처음이지? Welcome! Is it your first time at a Korean university? √ 네덜란드 교환학생 3인방이 쓴 실전 한국어 가이드 √ 유학생, 교환학생들에게 필수적인 한국어 표현만 골라 쉽고 빠르게! √ 한 손에 들어오는 포켓 사이즈로 간편하게 휴대 가능 √ A practical Korean language textbook written by three exchange students from the Netherlands √ An easy, friendly guide on essential Korean idioms and expressions for international and exchange students √ A portable pocket-sized book 는 유럽에서 유일하게 한국학과가 있는 네덜란드 레이덴대학교에서 온 교환학생 3인방이 쓴 실전 한국어 교재다. 부제인 ‘Your Friendly Guide to Student Life in Korea’에 걸맞게, 일상 생활 및 캠퍼스에서 자주 쓰이는 단어, 표현과 더불어 직접 경험한 한국 살이의 이모저모를 친한 친구에게 들려주듯 재미있게 풀었다. 레이덴대학교 한국학과에 다니는 라우른, 아이린, 레이첼은 연세대학교 교환학생이 되면서 한국 생활의 매력에 흠뻑 빠져든다. 축제와 MT, 동아리를 종횡무진 누비며 신나게 놀기도 하고, 치열한 수강신청 경쟁을 뚫는가 하면, 식당에서 “이모님”을 외치며 주문하는 것에도 익숙해진다. 물론, 문화 차이로 난감한 상황도 겪었다. 식당에서 벨을 누르면 종업원이 온다는 사실을 모른 채 무작정 기다리거나, 윗사람과 술을 마실 때는 고개를 돌린 채 잔을 비워야 한다는 예절을 몰랐을 때처럼 말이다. 이렇게 한국에서 좌충우돌 시행착오를 겪으며 배운, 말 그대로 “서바이벌” 한국어와 한국문화를 상황별로 정리해 8개의 챕터로 구성했다. 두루 쓰이는 생활 필수 표현에서부터 학교 수업, 자취방 구하기, 길 찾기, 식당에서 주문하기, 여가 생활, 쇼핑, 응급상황에 이르기까지, 한국에 처음 온 외국 학생들이 겪게 되는 거의 모든 상황을 다루며 꼭 필요한 단어와 표현을 제시한다. 올해 초 막 교환학생을 마치고 고향으로 돌아간 저자들의 따끈따끈한 경험을 바탕으로, 한국에 온 외국인이 어떤 점을 어려워하는지, 어떤 표현을 헷갈려 하는지를 콕콕 짚어내 ‘꿀팁’을 전수한다. 한국 유학을 계획하고 있거나 지금 한국에서 친절한 멘토를 찾고 있는 유학생이라면, 먼저 한국을 거쳐간 세 사람의 조언이 좋은 길잡이가 될 것이다. Survival Korean Crash Course is a practical Korean language guide written by three exchange students from Leiden University in the Netherlands, which runs the only Korean Studies major in Europe. As “Your Friendly Guide to Student Life in Korea,” the book is a friendly, fun read, like the writers are personally sharing their stories of life in Korea to a good friend. The book also contains frequently used Korean words and idioms. The three writers—Irene Schokker, Lauren Kies, and Rachel van den Berg—fell in love with life in Korea as exchange students at Yonsei University, where they met Korean friends, hung out at university festivals and student outings, joined student clubs and activities, and even raced against Koreans students in the fierce competition to register for classes. They went through difficulties too, as they got used to the cultural differences. Before they learned to call out “Auntie!” at a restaurant or ring a bell on the table, they would wait ages for a server to finally come take their order. And they had no idea that, according to Korean drinking customs, they should have turned their heads away when drinking with their seniors. Based on their own newbie mistakes and confusion, they put together this Survival Korean manual, featuring eight chapters organized by situation. The book lays out essential words and expressions commonly used in daily life and various situations that international students in Korea often encounter, including school classes, searching for a place to live, navigating the streets, ordering food at a restaurant, enjoying leisure time, shopping, and emergencies. Based on the first-hand experiences of the authors themselves, who have just finished their exchange semester and returned to the Netherlands earlier this year, the three students pass on their tips for the things foreigners living in Korea find difficult and the Korean expressions they find confusing. This book will be a useful guide for students who plan to study in Korea or are looking for a mentor on Korean life, with authentic advice and recommendations from real exchange students.
