Synopsis

The tumultuous past of the world's most secretive nation is revealed in this unique photographic collection. North Korea has been described as 'the land that never changes'. But its early years witnessed unimaginable turbulence, both in the devastation of the Korean War and in the postwar ferment in which military interventions by the Chinese and the Americans both played a part. Comprising more than 150 rare photos - most never before seen in print - "North Korea Caught in Time" documents the country's destruction and painful rebirth. The accompanying text analyzes the regime's totalitarian ethos and highlights their many official distortions of history.

California-born Chris Springer is the author of Pyongyang: The Hidden History of the North Korean Capital. He also curated the 2002 exhibition Democratic People's Republic of Korea in Budapest. His research focuses on North Korean domestic history. He has visited North Korea three times.Contributor Balazs Szalontai is the author of Kim Il Sung in the Khrushchev Era: Soviet-DPRK Relations and the Roots of North Korean Despotism, 1953-1964. His research concerns the modern history of Korea, Vietnam, Mongolia, Cambodia, and Albania. He currently teaches at Mongolia International University, Ulaanbaatar.
