Tensions around Korea are at a pitch not seen since the 1950-53 Korean War. Four million died then, in a non-nuclear conflict without today’s high-tech weapons. North Korea has just tested an H-bomb, and ICBMs that could reach the USA. What drives Pyongyang’s relentless pursuit of WMD? Why is the world unable to check this? Is Trump helping? What does the young and little-known Kim Jong-un really want? Aidan Foster-Carter, who has followed the DPRK for half a century, will unravel this latest complex crisis on a troubled peninsula.
