Paul French discusses North Korea: State of Paranoia

A talk at the Fulham branch of the wonderful Daunt Books. I’m assuming this is a second edition of his Paranoid Peninsula.

Thursday 29th May, 7pm at Daunt Books Fulham Road

North Korea continues to make headlines, arousing curiosity and fear in equal measure. To accompany the publication of his new book, leading expert and commentator Paul French will be discussing the country’s history, politics and relationship with the world in a talk at our Chelsea branch. He will be in conversation with Harriet Evans, professor of Chinese Cultural Studies at the University of Westminster .

As an already unstable North Korea grows ever more unpredictable, North Korea: State of Paranoia delivers a provocative and frightening account of a potentially explosive nuclear tripwire.

‘Paul French writes with wit, eloquence and rare clarity about the complicated history of North Korea.’ – Barbara Demick, author of Nothing to Envy: Real Lives in North Korea

This talk takes place at Daunt Books, Fulham Road. Tickets cost £5.00, and are available from the Fulham Road shop in person, or via telephone (0207 373 4997).
