How has North Korea repeatedly stymied or circumvented the efforts of the United States and others to prevent its nuclear weapons development? In a new book, No Exit: North Korea, Nuclear Weapons and International Security, Jonathan Pollack chronicles the political-military evolution of the Korean peninsula since 1945. Pollack focuses on North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear technology and nuclear weapons, and how it has shaped Northeast Asian security and non-proliferation policy and influenced the strategic choices of the United States and the regional powers. Pollack also provides unique insights into North Korea’s leadership, institutions and political history.
