Oprah vs. Juche: Reviewing the Laura Ling/Euna Lee North Korea Memoirs

Brian Gleason is a young analyst of North Korean refugee issues and international studies at Yonsei University in Seoul.  Through his work on the site SinoNK.com, Gleason and I connected, and determined to write an in-depth review of two memoirs that ostensibly dealt with the refugee issue, security along the Chinese-North Korean border, and international politics.  An earlier version of this review was there published on SinoNK.com on July 3.  The extended print version is now available in Korean Quarterly, as the featured article in the second section of their summer issue, jpgs of which are offered below with the publisher’s permission.
