North Korea and Regional Security in the Kim Jong-un Era is one of the first books to analyze contemporary North Korea and the challenges that it presents to the international community, specifically by looking through the prism of the first two years of the Kim Jong-un regime.
Analysing and assessing important capabilities, developments, policy moves, and internal stability challenges, it also illuminates the differences between North Korea under the rule of Kim Jong-il and now the 'third Kim' in this dynastic, isolated nation. In its exploration of international security issues, which are extremely important for foreign policy, Bechtol's analysis offers valuable assessments that will appeal to all those with an interest in the region.

Bruce E. Bechtol Jr. is an Associate Professor of Political Science at Angelo State University, USA and a retired U.S. Marine. He is currently the President of the International Council on Korean Studies, and is the author or editor of five previous books and numerous articles.
