    I wanted to support this author, but I was highly disappointed with this work. Not only does the editing of this writing seem to be non-existent, but the author himself adds hardly any of his own analysis. The majority of this book is quotes from DPRKorean leaders, followed by nothing more than one paragraph of the author's own thoughts. In the end, I couldn't even tell you what the thesis of this work is because this book seems to be nothing more than hate toward Kim Kong-Il. I was also deeply disturbed by the fact that Steiner used the same accusations that the ruling class does in order to discredit the DPRK. For example, Steiner said on p. 19, "Then here we have Kim Jong-Il earning the title of a god. Even a toddler could grasp that something is terribly wrong with this!" These two short sentences infantalize the people of the DPRK by saying that they are apparently less intelligent than toddlers. This is a very common tactic used by anti-DPRK, anti-communist racists who... More > constantly cry "brainwashing" by the Workers Party of Kprea, as if Koreans can't think for themselves or know what is best for them. This is absolutely unacceptable and must be challenged every time it is seen. Overall, I do not believe this book knows what it wants to be and I feel it is burdened by general anti-communist ideas that affect any attempts at analysis. I think the biggest accomplishment here is it's portrayal of the author's disdain for Kim Jong-Il.< Less
