Críticas:

"An up-close, insightful portrait. . . . "The Impossible State" is a clearheaded, bold examination of North Korea and its future."--Washington Post

"Cha demonstrates an intimate familiarity with the regime's contradictions. . . . The thesis is clear: the world's most closed-off state needs to open up to survive, but breaking its hermetic seal may well precipitate its demise."--The New Yorker

"An eye-opening view of the closed, repressive dictatorship of North Korea. . . . A useful, pertinent work for understanding the human story behind the headlines."--Kirkus Reviews

"A meaty, fast-paced portrait of North Korean society, economy, politics, and foreign policy by an expert who has studied the regime as a scholar and interacted with its officials."--Foreign Affairs

"Ask those who deal with national security what worries them most and at the top of the list or near it you'll always find North Korea, a place about which we know little to nothing. That's why Victor Cha's book is so valuable."--Bob Schieffer, CBS News Chief Washington Correspondent

""The Impossible State" is provocative, frightening, and never more relevant than today as an untested new leader takes charge of the world's most unpredictable nuclear power."--Andrea Mitchell, NBC News Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent

An up-close, insightful portrait. . . . "The Impossible State" is a clearheaded, bold examination of North Korea and its future. --Washington Post"

Essential reading for all North Korea watchers. . . . An informative and enjoyable read. --Library Journal (starred review)"

Reseña del editor:

"A meaty, fast-paced portrait of North Korean society, economy, politics and foreign policy." -Foreign Affairs

The definitive account of North Korea, its veiled past and uncertain future, from the former Director for Asian Affairs at the National Security Council

In The Impossible State, seasoned international-policy expert and lauded scholar Victor Cha pulls back the curtain on this controversial and isolated country, providing the best look yet at North Korea's history, the rise of the Kim family dynasty, and the obsessive personality cult that empowers them. He illuminates the repressive regime's complex economy and culture, its appalling record of human-rights abuses, and its belligerent relationship with the United States, and analyzes the regime's major security issues--from the seemingly endless war with its southern neighbor to its frightening nuclear ambitions--all in light of the destabilizing effects of Kim Jong-il's recent death.

How this enigmatic nation-state--one that regularly violates its own citizens' inalienable rights and has suffered famine, global economic sanctions, a collapsed economy, and near total isolation from the rest of the world--has continued to survive has long been a question that preoccupies the West. Cha reveals a land of contradictions, one facing a pivotal and disquieting transition of power from tyrannical father to inexperienced son, and delves into the ideology that leads an oppressed, starving populace to cling so fiercely to its failed leadership.

With rare personal anecdotes from the author's time in Pyongyang and his tenure as an adviser in the White House, this engagingly written, authoritative, and highly accessible history offers much-needed answers to the most pressing questions about North Korea and ultimately warns of a regime that might be closer to its end than many might think--a political collapse for which America and its allies may be woefully unprepared.
