The North Korean State: Renegade Regime

By Associated Press, Eric Talmadge
This AP Editions book looks at the North Korean State as an instrument of calculated and thorough mind control from birth to death. The book begins with the West s first glimpse of mind control during the Korean War, as prisoners of war were systematically subjected to what became known as brainwashing. The cult of personality involving the dynastic dictators Kim Il-sung, Kim Jong-il, and now grandson Kim Jong-un is investigated. We look at some of the instruments of control including their Hate America Month, use of labor camps and international abductions, systematic executions, and use of slave labor. North Korea s threat to world security as a nuclear armed pariah state is examined in the concluding chapter of the book."

Eric Talmadge joined The Associated Press in Tokyo after moving to Japan to attend university as a teenager and has for nearly three decades covered news events in Asia and beyond, including assignments in Iraq and Afghanistan, four Olympic Games and the 2011 tsunami and nuclear accident at Fukushima. Dividing his time between Tokyo and Pyongyang, Talmadge has been AP s North Korea bureau chief since late 2013. Throughout most of his tenure in North Korea, where he has been allowed to travel extensively, he has been the only American journalist allowed to regularly work in the country.
