"Ambitiously designed community buildings, faceless mass housing developments, and a monumental emptiness are the defining features of Pyongyang - a city of three million inhabitants rising from rubble after the Korean War of the 1950s. This guide offers unprecedented insights into the capital of what is probably the most isolated country in the world, ruled in the third generation by a 'first family' stubbornly upholding its own brand of stone-age communism."
