The Hermit Kingdom Goes Online
Information Technology, Internet Use and Communication Policy in North KoreaE-Single
About the Book
This study gives a comprehensive overview of the development of the Internet in North Korea, and discusses related applications, challenges and opportunities. It argues that North Korea can no longer ignore the Internet, neither as a chance to further its intentions, e.g., in cyber warfare, national self-representation and business, nor as a threat due to the greater availability of knowledge in the country. This McFarland E-Single originally appeared in the Spring 2014 issue of North Korean Review (ISSN 1551-2789). The first academic journal in North America or Europe to focus exclusively on North Korea, NKR is published twice each year. Subscriptions and back issues are available directly from McFarland.
