Summary:
This book argues that North Korea has outlived forecasts of its collapse because of Juche-a unique political institution built on the simple notion of self-determination, whose meanings and limits have been shaped by Koreans' experiences with colonialism, war, and development amidst surrounding superpowers that have complicated their aspirations.
