Augusts's book discussion: Nothing to Envy by B. Demick
Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea is a Protected content of interviews with refugees from Chongjin, North Korea, written by Los Angeles Times journalist Barbara Demick.
The book follows the lives of six North Koreans over fifteen years—a chaotic period that saw the death of Kim Il-sung, the unchallenged rise to power of his son Kim Jong-il, and the devastation of a far-ranging famine that killed one-fifth of the population.
Nothing to Envy is a groundbreaking addition to the literature of totalitarianism and an eye-opening look at a closed world that is of increasing global importance.
