6/2/09: Making Sense of North Korea

Salt Lake City, UT – Tuesday on RadioWest - making sense of North Korea. It's believed that tension in the Korean Peninsula is at the highest level since the war there in the 1950s. The scholar BR Myers joins Doug to explore the context for the behavior of the country. This is about political culture. Myers describes the ideology of North Korea this way - race-based, paranoid nationalism.
