"An insightful and provocative analysis."--William Ury, cofounder of the Harvard Negotiation Project

"A timely, perceptive, and penetrating analysis of North Korea. This is a must for those who are interested in contemporary North Korean affairs."
--Chung-in Moon, Distinguished University Professor, Yonsei University

"With almost fifty visits to the DPRK, Glyn Ford is one of the top European experts on the Korean Peninsula. Readers, whatever their political views, will find much to stimulate their thinking regarding one of the most important political-security issues of our time." --Jeffrey D. Feltman, United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs

"With direct access to North Korean government officials and a lifetime of observation and analysis of the country, Glyn Ford has insight like no other. A strongly recommended, impartial read, revealing previous political tricks and failures of 73 years of miscommunication and stagnation. . . . A possible path out of this mess."
--Nicholas Bonner, Founder of Koryo Tours

Glyn Ford is Director of Track2Asia, a representative on Labour's National Policy Forum and a member of the Labour Party's International Committee. He is the author of Talking to North Korea (Pluto, 2018) and North Korea on the Brink (Pluto, 2007). He has visited North Korea almost 50 times as an MEP amongst other professional capacities.
