Book Talk: Kim Jong Un and the Bomb: Survival and Deterrence in North Korea
The USF Center for Asia Pacific Studies welcomes Ankit Panda, Stanton Senior Fellow in the Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, to campus to discuss his book Kim Jong Un and the Bomb: Survival and Deterrence in North Korea.
What can nuclear weapons do for a country like North Korea? Panda explores the origins of the country's interests in nuclear weapons and the realization of its longstanding ambitions under Kim Jong Un, the country's third leader. As the world's newest nuclear power, North Korea presents unique challenges to Northeast Asian, American, and global security, and the international nuclear nonproliferation regime.
