In this declassified CIA study, she describes the worlds most extreme cult society under the charismatic totalitarian leader, Kim Il-song, who ruled his people for 45 years-longer than any other leader of the 20th century.--Kim Il-songs totalitarian cult society comes closest to George Orwells 1984 than any society yet contrived. Hunter brings to life what it is like to live in a thoroughly thought-controlled society-which also is the worlds most class-conscious society. Based on all the sources available to the CIA at the time, this book is the most comprehensive look at North Korean life ever published. It is essential reading for foreign policy officials, Asian Studies scholars, and the general public interested in world affairs.
