Ongoing ideological or political conflicts in the modern world have led to appalling human rights violations against North Korean defectors who attempt to escape from their repressive country and seek freedom. Although some North Korean defectors have survived the life-threatening escape journey and arrived in free countries, their overwhelming challenges have not yet ended, as they now face a range of issues and challenges in resettlement, adjustment, and learning process in new and competitive societies. North Korean Defectors in a New and Competitive Society articulates several hurdles that North Korean defectors encounter, from their long journey of escape to assimilation in their new homes. This book seeks to raise international awareness of human rights violations against North Koreans, and to emphasize the importance of helping them overcome the substantial cultural gaps between North Korea and their new homes.

Ahlam Lee is assistant professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Human Resource Development at Xavier University.Review:
This book is a valuable addition to the growing field of North Korean studies. This multi-layered study of the plight of North Korean refugees—victims of political repression, economic deprivation, and ideological indoctrination—sheds a new light on the "re-traumatization" that many North Korean settlers face in the immeasurably richer and freer South Korea, where they are victimized by socio-economic barriers and general apathy. Lee's book is an eloquent appeal to the human heart in its capacity for abstract sympathy. (Sung-Yoon Lee, The Fletcher School, Tufts University)
