About this book

China, Japan, Russia, and South Korea have struggled to navigate between the unsettling belligerence of North Korea and the often unilateral insistence of the United States on how to proceed. This book focuses on their strategic thinking and internal debates over four stages of the crisis.

Reviews

"As the international community continues to grapple with the challenges posed by North Korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons, Professor Gil Rozman has made an important and timely contribution to the debate. Professor Rozman accurately portrays the competing and conflicting interests of the players in the Six-Party Talks and provides an insightful description of the miscalculations, misperceptions, and policy failings that have thus far prevented a resolution of this lingering crisis. I know of no scholar better equipped than Gil Rozman to put the nuclear crisis squarely in the context of the complex regional relations among the powers in Northeast Asia. Professor Rozman has performed a valuable service."

- Evans J.R. Revere, President, The Korea Society "Professor Rozman's probing and insightful study of the interests and attitudes of 'the other four' countries in the Six-Party talks South Korea, China, Japan, and Russia makes clear why those talks have been so difficult but also why they must remain a major element in dealing with North Korea and its nuclear weapons. His book is essential reading not only for everyone concerned about the challenges posed by North Korea but for anyone who wants to understand the complexity and necessity of multilateral diplomacy in today's world." - David Straub, former State Department Korean Affairs Director
