In June 1994 the United States went to the brink of war with North Korea. Few Americans know the full details behind this story. In this lively and authoritative book Leon Sigal offers an inside look at how the Korean nuclear crisis originated, escalated, and was ultimately defused. Drawing upon in-depth interviews with policymakers from the countries involved, he discloses the details of the buildup to confrontation, American refusal to engage in diplomatic give-and-take, the Carter mission, and the deal of October 1994.
