A new book from Author Anna Fifield tells the story of North Korea leader Kim Jong Un - The Great Successor: The Divinely Perfect Destiny of Brilliant Comrade Kim Jong Un. Since his birth in 1984, has been swaddled in myth and propaganda. Fifield explores his past and present with exclusive access to sources near him and brings her unique understanding to explain the dynastic mission of the Kim family in North Korea. The archaic notion of despotic family rule matches the almost medieval hardship the country has suffered under the Kims. Few people thought that a young, untested, unhealthy, Swiss-educated basketball fanatic could hold together a country that should have fallen apart years ago. But Kim Jong Un has not just survived, he has thrived. Skeptical yet insightful, Fifield creates a captivating portrait of the oddest and most secretive political regime in the world--one that is isolated yet internationally relevant, bankrupt yet in possession of nuclear weapons--and its ruler, the self-proclaimed beloved and respected Leader, Kim Jong Un.
