A comparative analysis of North and South Korean political and economic institutions and processes and their evolution since 1945. Following a description of the political heritage that led to the emergence of the two regimes, the author considers the development of opposing totalitarian and democratizing political orders. He then surveys the differences between the economic systems, strategies, and policies of North and South Korea, evaluating their performance for the past five decades. He also considers such long-standing problems as leadership succession, democratization, and liberalization; nuclear weapons and the continuing arms race; and contending approaches to education and reunification.
