Dear List:

I received this information request from a good friend known through the
missionary-and-church connection rather than through Korean studies, but I
thought someone on the list would be able to provide much better information
than I, even if not by the date he asks.

Thank you.

Subject: Request for Resources on North Korea

Dear Korea Friends,

We trust that each of you is well, and will enjoy a pleasant spring season.

Just as the "fall of the Wall" brought significant challenges to newly-freed
peoples, the eventual change in North Korea will pose obstacles and
opportunities. This is a request for information from the best brain trust I
can think of.

As an Army Reserve chaplain and MK, I am writing a paper for the U. S. Army
War College on the "Rebuilding of North Korea." I need to complete the
research by April 19 [sa-il-koo] of this year. My assumption is that the
North and South will be reunited one day, and that the new Korea will enjoy
some measure of democracy.

Can you suggest articles or books that would help U. S. military planners
understand the needs of a reunited and free peninsula, in general; and the
needs up North, in particular? I am thinking broadly, of the social,
economic, cultural, political, religious and security needs of a future

Your help will be greatly appreciated. If you could respond by Tuesday,
March 30, you will have many stars in your crown.

Thanks, and God keep each of you,

Jim DeCamp
