• "In his timely book, Gordon G. Chang turns the spotlight back onto the world's worst regime and most egregious state proliferator of nuclear weapons. As Chang, a longtime Asia hand and accomplished writer, correctly notes, the world in general and the United States in particular are too inclined to forget about this dangerous region in their constant focus on Iraq and al Qaeda... His prose is lively and crisp, making this book an easy read on a difficult subject... Accessible and up-to-date."
