China and North Korea Politics of Integration and Modernization

Han Shik Park & Kyung Ae Park

The book examines the process of national integration and modernization in the PRC and North Korea. Using a paradigm of development, the study compares and contrasts the two Asian communist systems in terms of their system goals, policy strategies, and social and cultural consequences. In view of the endemic reform movements in the European communist systems, the book is especially significant as it provides useful clues for the inferent problems and limitations imbedded in socialist strategies toward development.
