The Cold War International History Project just released the CWIHP Bulletin No. 16 - Inside China's Cold War.

NKIDP e-Dossier no. 12, "The Cuban Missile Crisis and the Origins of North Korea’s Policy of Self-Reliance in National Defense," is introduced by James F. Person and features 6 translated documents which demonstrate how the Cuban Missile Crisis transformed North Korea’s relations with Moscow and Beijing and nudged the country down a path of unsustainable military buildup that, in part, resulted in a nuclear weapons program and was responsible for the country’s economic difficulties in later decades.
The international conference "France, Europe, and Vietnam since 1954" will take place in Paris from January 16-18, 2014.
NKIDP and CWIHP are pleased to welcome Wilson Center Korea Scholar Giwon Kwon. His project is entitled The History of Inter-Korean Relations from the Late 1940s to the Present.
