North Korea's October 2006 detonation of nuclear test device and its earlier launching of long-range Taepodong-2 missiles demonstrate to many that the Bush administration's bellicose and unyielding approach to North Korean nuclear capability "simply has not worked." Such is also the assessment of Fuqua (a retired US Army officer who is currently Director of International Engagement and Communications at the U. of Illinois), who endeavors to point the way towards an alternative approach towards convincing North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons aspirations. In order to formulate such an approach, it is necessary to understand the ideological and historical foundations of the North Korean regime as a means of understanding its contemporary behavior and therefore Fuqua begins his volume with a discussion of the development and importance of the North Korean Juche ideology (typically translated as "self reliance," but according to Fuqua better understood as "autonomous self-identity"); the role of the US and the former Soviet Union in the division of the Korean peninsula; and North Korea's historical political and economic relationships with China, South Korea, the Soviet Union, and the United States. He then discusses the composition of North Korea's nuclear, biological, and chemical arsenals and reviews US policy options. He rejects armed conflict and forced regime change as unviable options for achieving denuclearization and instead recommends a deliberate and evolutionary program of asymmetric economic statecraft intended to increase North Korean dependence on Western economic inputs and market-oriented economics that can then be used as leverage to achieve denuclearization.
