NKIDP e-Dossier no. 11, "Explaining North Korean Migration to China," is introduced by Hazel Smith and features 11 translated Chinese documents which provide a window into historical cases of legal and illegal migration between the DPRK and China.
NKIDP e-Dossier No. 1, "Did Stalin Lure the United States into the Korean War? New Evidence on the Origins of the Korean War," features a telegram from Stalin to Czechoslovakian President Klement Gottwald which raises new questions about the origins of the Korean War. Did Stalin purposefully seek to entangle the United States in a military conflict on the Korean Peninsula? Did Stalin expect an intervention by the Chinese communists from virtually the beginning of the conflict? Two experts, Donggil Kim and William Stueck, provide an initial assessment of this potentially significant new finding.
