We have written this book on the possibility of inter-Korean peace through North Korean democratization in a milieu of both pessimism and wishful thinking regarding the future of the North Korean dictatorial regime. This book will not be calculating and predicting the probability of North Korean regime collapse or survival. Rather this book plans to examine vague, unsorted, and undigested hopes for democracy in North Korea and inter-Korean peace and from them find possibilities that may be realized in the near future.
