Merriam-Webster defines a “house of cards” as “a structure, situation, or institution that is insubstantial, shaky, or in constant danger of collapse.” As with many things in North Korea, its own house of cards is slightly unique, slightly less precariously balanced, but still in danger of collapse. North Korea’s house of cards consists of the uppermost echelons of the country’s leaders, with the “Supreme Leader,” Kim Jong-un, situated at the top. This book, North Korean House of Cards: Leadership Dynamics Under Kim Jong-un, is centered on the regime and the leadership dynamics within it, and develops a model to make sense of a totalitarian system built on over sixty years of the Kim family dictatorship.
