Books on North Korea

nkoreamapAt the moment I plow through books on North Korea. We didn’t get much (any?) education about North-South Korean history. Instead our teacher prioritized history about Scandinavia and how Europe colonized different parts of the world.

Suggestions is welcome. So far I’ve read the following.

Finished reading
A Thousand Miles to Freedom by Kim Eun Sun

All Monsters Must Die by Magnus Bärtås & Fredrik Ekman A story about a group of people traveling to North Korea in 2008.

Escape from Camp 14 by Blaine Harden The first book I read. Tells the story of Shin Dong Hyuk, born in labor camp 14. After reading the book you may want to read this about the reliability of Shin’s story.

Dear Leader by Jang Jin Sung The opposite to Escape from Camp 14.

Mr. Han’s Chronicle by Hwang Sok Yong

Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick Really good book about how regular people live in Chongjin, North Korea’s third largest city.

The Embassy in Paradise by Lovisa Lamm A book about how Sweden was quick open an embassy in Pyongyang, and the consequences of it.

Plan to read
The Great Leader and the Fighter Pilot by Blaine Harden
