In this historically grounded, richly empirical study of social and economic transformation in North Korea, Hazel Smith evaluates the 'marketization from below' that followed the devastating famine of the early 1990s, estimated to be the cause of nearly one million fatalities. Smith shows how the end of the Cold War in Europe and the famine brought radical social change to all of North Korean society. This major new study analyses how marketization transformed the interests, expectations and values of the entire society, including Party members, the military, women and men, the young and the elderly. Smith shows how the daily life of North Koreans has become alienated from the daily pronouncements of the North Korean government. Challenging stereotypes of twenty-five million North Koreans as mere bystanders in history, Smith argues that North Koreans are 'neither victims nor villains' but active agents of their own destiny.

6. Lewis, John W [2015] Online

Collection
Stanford Historical Society Oral History Program interviews, 1999-2012
John W. Lewis, the William Haas Professor of Chinese Politics, Emeritus, established some of the first study programs in contemporary Asian politics in the United States. He founded or co-founded centers at Cornell University and Stanford University, helped to draft foreign policy for the federal government, and built cooperative relationships with leaders and scholars in China, Korea, Russia, and Vietnam. Although now retired, he continues to be active, writing books and giving lectures. In this oral history interview, Lewis talks about his experiences working in a field that challenged deeply ingrained cultural and political beliefs. He describes what it was like to come to Stanford as an expert on the highly sensitive subject of China at the height of public unrest regarding the Vietnam War, and how that affected his relationships with both students and teachers. He recounts his recruitment to Stanford by J.E. Wallace Sterling, establishing the Center for East Asian Studies, the visit of the Chinese ping-pong team to Stanford in 1972, the climate of protest against the Vietnam War at Stanford, and the beginnings of the Center for International Strategic Arms Control (CISAC). Lewis also discusses his experiences as an educator, including his involvement in an interdisciplinary course on nuclear arms and disarmament and conducting simulations of arms control talks with students. He describes some of his foreign policy work for the U.S. State Department and the Department of Defense. He reviews the impact his work has had on relations between the United States and East Asia, the current state of the field, and his ongoing work as an author, lecturer, and researcher.

A comprehensive settlement of the North Korean nuclear issue may involve military, economic, political, and diplomatic components, many of which will require verification to ensure reciprocal implementation. This paper sets out potential verification methodologies that might address a wide range of objectives. The inspection requirements set by the International Atomic Energy Agency form the foundation, first as defined at the time of the Agreed Framework in 1994, and now as modified by the events since revelation of the North Korean uranium enrichment program in October 2002. In addition, refreezing the reprocessing facility and 5 MWe reactor, taking possession of possible weapons components and destroying weaponization capabilities add many new verification tasks. The paper also considers several measures for the short-term freezing of the North's nuclear weapon program during the process of negotiations, should that process be protracted. New inspection technologies and monitoring tools are applicable to North Korean facilities and may offer improved approaches over those envisioned just a few years ago. These are noted, and potential bilateral and regional verification regimes are examined.
