Covering political and legal issues of the Korean question in the United Nations, this is an analysis of the meaning and effects of the Korean problem in UN politics. The book discusses the UN's role in the management of the Korean problem, the effects of the Korean war, South-North Korea's rivalry over the issues of their legitimacy and international representation, the problems of the Korean armistice agreement, and prospects for the four-party peace talks. It also examines North Korea's nuclear programme and structural famine as the new concerns of the international community in the post-Cold War era.
