September 5, 2013 – Columbia University Professor Charles Armstrong unveils his latest work, Tyranny of the Weak: North Korea and the World, 1950-1992, for members and media. Armstrong exposes the motivations, processes and effects of DPRK Cold War foreign relations. Drawing from Soviet, Chinese and East German archives, he reveals how North Korea managed fellow communist states, maintained independence during the Sino-Soviet split, reached out to the West, presented itself as a Third World model, and confronted and engaged the U.S. and ROK. From the Korean War through Soviet decline, his coverage reveals how–despite weakness–North Korea has dealt with the outside world to its advantage and resisted pressure to change–of which an understanding today is as urgent as sixty years ago.

    People need to be free..! Pray these people are set free..
    The U.S. Department of the Treasury added the young ruler, along with 10
    other North Korean individuals and five entities, to the U.S. sanctions
    list today. "Human rights abuses in the DPRK are among the worst in the
    world,"  U.S. Department of State spokesman John Kirby said in a
    statement today. "The government continues to commit extrajudicial
    killings, enforced disappearances, arbitrary arrest and detention,
    forced labor and torture.  Many of these abuses are committed in the
    political prison camps, where an estimated 80,000 to 120,000 individuals
    are detained, including children and family members of the accused."
    The department added that this is part of "the most comprehensive U.S.
    government effort to date" to identify and sanction North Korea's
    leaders responsible for the widespread abuses — which they hope will
    "send a signal to all government officials who might be responsible for
    human rights abuses." Kim is among 23 total North Korean individuals and
    entities cited in a report released by the U.S. Department of State
    today for their role in serious human rights violations, hunting down
    defectors or censorship in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
    U.S. officials gathered the names with the cooperation of other
    governments, international organizations and civil society groups
