How much do you know about North Korea? Depending on whom you ask, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) is an international laughing-stock, a terrifying nuclear-powered war machine, or a humanitarian crisis of nightmarish proportion. For David Alton, the DPRK is Asia's tragic and prodigal son, long overdue 'coming in from the cold' and returning to the embrace of the international community. The obstacles are gigantic and the record of human suffering is almost beyond description, yet there is still hope for a better future - if only the political and military powers have the courage to seize it. In this book, David Alton and Rob Chidley paint a practical and compassionate picture of North Korea, from the earliest history to the tragic division and right up to the present day. In doing so, they present a North Korea that we can understand, approach, and reach out to with a glimmer of hope.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"David Alton has visited North Korea several times, questioned and challenged its leadership, learned about the terrible record of its prison camps, its tortures, its induced famines over the course of sixty years, and met many witnesses to the extraordinary survival of faith, generosity of spirit and forgiveness in [one of] the darkest places on earth. That evidence inspires him to believe there are ways out of this human hell. This is a book about brutality on a global scale. But it is also a book about hope." -- Baroness Shirley Williams
"A fascinating and eminently readable account of Korean history." -- David Steel - Lord Steel of Aikwood
"Building Bridges is destined to be the `go-to' book on the world's most secretive nation. It is gripping, authoritative and accessible." -- Danny Smith, Jubilee Campaign
