Reviews

‘The first and most complete source of information on Pyongyang – a must-have reference for anyone who wants to know anything about North Korea.’ —Professor Hwansoo Ilmee Kim, Duke University

‘The “Historical Dictionary of Pyongyang” will be an excellent resource for researchers and students interested in North Korea and in Korean history more generally. This sort of reference work is invaluable for our understanding of North Korea – perhaps even more so in the age of Google and Wikipedia, when so much unsourced information about North Korea is floating around the Internet. As the second city of the Korean peninsula Pyongyang is often overlooked, aside from in its status as the North Korean capital. Hopefully this book will do something to rectify that and remind people of its long history as an important East Asian city.’ —Dr Owen Miller, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London
