Pub. Date:
Eight international academics and researchers contribute nine chapters examining the critical 21st-century security issues posed by Iran and North Korea. Four chapters on Iran explore specific military and political challenges; technical progress and impediments facing the country's recent developments; security, prestige, and domestic politics as the motivations behind Iran's proliferation program; and the dangers posed by continuing tensions with the U.S. Five chapters on North Korea consider ways the country threatens security, the tenuous peace on the Korean peninsula, why attempts at coercive diplomacy against North Korea have failed, China's role in security and the North Korean Peninsula, and how the combination of missile and nuclear programs threatens Japan. Multiple appendices contain maps, chronologies, UN Security Council Resolutions, and selected agreements, treaties, and documents related to Korea. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
