CWIHP Working Paper No. 57
NKIDP e-Dossier no. 15, "The 1967 Purge of the Gapsan Faction and Establishment of the Monolithic Ideological System," draws on newly obtained and translated Romanian and East German documents to shed new light on the purge of the so-called Gapsan faction and establishment of the Monolithic Ideological System in 1967 by North Korean founding leader Kim Il Sung, events which continue to loom large over North Korea and suggest that the purge and execution of Jang Song Thaek should be analyzed primarily in the context of efforts to solidify the unitary leadership of Kim Jong Un.
