The Korean Conundrum 01-12-05

December 22, 2004

On Wednesday, January 12, 2005, Coalition members Ted Carpenter and Doug Bandow discuss their new book, The Korean Conundrum: America's Troubled Relations with North and South Korea at the Cato Institute.

The Cato Institute will host a book forum featuring the authors Ted Galen Carpenter, Cato's vice president of defense and foreign policy studies, and Cato senior fellow Doug Bandow.

In The Korean Conundrum: America's Troubled Relations with North and South Korea (Palgrave/Macmillan, 2004), Carpenter and Bandow question whether Washington's East Asia security strategy makes sense any longer given the possibility of a nuclear-armed North Korea and the fraying ties between the United States and South Korea. The prospect of U.S. troops stationed in South Korea becoming nuclear hostages makes it imperative to reconsider U.S. policy on the Korean peninsula and throughout East Asia. The book provides a candid assessment of America's position in East Asia and the wider world.

The event will also include commentary by Don Oberdorfer, former Washington Post correspondent and author of The Two Koreas; and Selig Harrison, Director of the Asia Project, Center for International Policy, and author of Korean Endgame followed by discussion and audience Q&A.

The event begins at Noon on Wednesday, January 12. For more information and to register please visit:
