The present study deals with the cities of North Korea and approaches the research topic from three different angles. One of the angles is of a qualitative nature and the remaining two are quantitative. The first approach deals with the facilities of the cities, especially with industrial plants. Therefore five sources have been investigated separately. The second methodological approach was used to study the structure of the cities of North Korea. The analysis of the data on transformation in the administrative divisions within the cities, answers to questions about the extension or reduction of the urban area and the development of centers within the city. This publication offers information about the 27 North Korean citieswhich either has a useful relevance for the typification of the cities and the elaboration of specific characteristics or can be used for the interpretation and explanation of the results of the quantitative research approaches of the present study. The presentation of the results is divided into two parts. First, the results with regard to interrelations between the cities (population shares, numbers of factories, etc.) are presented. Secondly, each of the 27 cities will be granted a separate chapter, where results are presented from all three approaches. In an appendix (in Korean) all the relevant names concerning North Korean industrial companies units are listed.

Book Description Kong and Park, Korea, Republic of, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Publications on North Korean geography, especially detailed descriptions of the various regions of North Korean territory, are rare and usually have to rely on relatively old sources, such as the classics written by Lautensach and Saitchikov. However, the fact that the DPRK has in recent years established diplomatic relations with an increasing number of countries has inevitably led to a proportionate increase in opportunities for scholars to access primary source material. The present study deals with the cities of North Korea and approaches the research topic from three different angles. Seller Inventory # AAT9788962971675
