Chung Min Lee - The Hermit King: The Dangerous Game of Kim Jong Un — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Monday, November 11, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In his comprehensive study of North Korea, Lee puts Kim Jong Un in historical and cultural perspective by tracing the rise of the Kim dynasty and illuminating how the family’s record of brutal control has shaped the current leader’s motivations, goals, and choices. Drawing on more than three decades of experience in Asia affairs, Lee, a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and chairman of the international advisory council of the International Institute for Strategic Studies, shows how Kim’s aggressive standoff with world powers has put him at a crossroads; but whether North Korea creates a viable nuclear arsenal or liberalizes, the country’s increasing vulnerability to famine all but ensures a humanitarian crisis in the region.
