Fascinating, and nicely concise. But take with grains of salt: it's dated. Also, amidst the chaotic mix of opinions on N. Korea, it's unclear whose views merit greater weight: native/ethnic Koreans, or smart experts on Korea. Feffer's an expert; he's not Korean (hence lacks direct subjective insight into intense feelings stirred by division and unification rhetoric). But his mini-treatise is readable and gives an interesting counterpoint to media sound bites.
