Dear Morgan,

"Pyongyang and its People: Notices of a Soviet Student" by Dr. Andrei Lankov
provides a unique insight into North Korean mass propaganda and some
comparisons with its Soviet prototype.
See < http://north-korea.narod.ru/pyongyang_lankov.htm > It will be of great
help to your student.

With regards,
