The tumultuous past of the world's most secretive nation is revealed in this unique photographic collection. North Korea has been described as 'the land that never changes'. But its early years witnessed unimaginable turbulence, both in the devastation of the Korean War and in the postwar ferment in which military interventions by the Chinese and the Americans both played a part. Comprising more than 150 rare photos - most never before seen in print - "North Korea Caught in Time" documents the country's destruction and painful rebirth. The accompanying text analyzes the regime's totalitarian ethos and highlights their many official distortions of history.
