Korean Endgame:
A Strategy for Reunification and U.S. Disengagement
Selig S. Harrison
With a new afterword by the author

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]


"Selig Harrison has longer and more intimate experience with North Korean security issues than any other American observer. He has used his inside knowledge plus extensive additional research to produce a provocative appeal for new thinking about the current situation on the Korean peninsula and the challenges in the years ahead. This is an important contribution that will benefit policymakers and the public alike."--Don Oberdorfer, author of The Two Koreas: A Contemporary History, former diplomatic correspondent for the Washington Post

"Korean Endgame is the best analysis I have seen of the difficult policy choices facing the United States in Korea. Selig Harrison covers all the key issues accurately and thoroughly, bringing into perspective the complicated relationships among North Korea, South Korea, and the United States. Providing a realistic strategy for ending one of the world's most dangerous military confrontations, this book should be required reading for policymakers and others who care about Asia and international affairs."--Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States, Founder and Chairman of The Carter Center

"As one of the few Americans who have known both South and North Korea for the past three decades, Mr. Harrison has made a unique and valuable contribution to the promotion of improved relations between the two Koreas and between North Korea and the United States. With his new book, he has, once again, provided policymakers on both sides of the Pacific with concrete and effective ways to promote peace and stability in the Northeast Asian region."--Maj. Gen. Lim Dong-won (Ret.), Special Advisor to the President for National Security and Unification and former Director of the National Intelligence Service, Republic of Korea

"Selig Harrison has written the best book to appear on the Korean problem in many years. It is the summing up of thirty-five years of close observation by one of America's best analysts, who marries the curiosity of a great investigative reporter to the contemporary policy concerns of someone in close touch with debates in Washington. Unlike almost anyone else, Harrison has had access to all the major players in Washington, Seoul, and Pyongyang, while retaining his independence and authoritative judgment."--Bruce Cumings, author of The Origins of the Korean War

"Harrison's fair-minded and well-researched book makes a timely contribution to American understanding of relations with North Korea. His reportage on North Korean points of view are gleaned from his years of first-hand contact. He uncovers much that has never appeared in print and clears up numerous misunderstandings. Accessible to anyone curious about foreign affairs, the book is a must-read for anyone interested in Korea or the region."--Leon Sigal, author of Disarming Strangers: Nuclear Diplomacy with North Korea
