Item Details

Baker & Taylor
The memoirs of a survivor of a North Korean communist prison describes the harsh conditions in a gulag, his life in North Korea, and his daring escape.

Perseus Publishing
North Korea is today one of the last bastions of hard-line Communism. Its leaders have kept a tight grasp on their one-party regime, quashing any nascent opposition movements and sending all suspected dissidents to its brutal concentration camps for "re-education." Kang Chol-hwan is the first survivor of one of these camps to escape and tell his story to the world, documenting the extreme conditions in these gulags and providing a personal insight into life in North Korea. Part horror story, part historical document, part memoir, part political tract, this record of one man's suffering gives eyewitness proof to an ongoing sorrowful chapter of modern history.

The first personal documentation of life in the North Korean labor camps from a survivor and escapee of the communist regime's prisons
