    The behind-the-scenes story of the rise and reign of the world’s strangest and most elusive tyrant, Kim Jong Un, by the journalist with the best connections and insights into the bizarrely dangerous world of North Korea. Anna Fifield reconstructs Kim’s past and present with exclusive access to sources near him and brings her unique understanding to explain the dynastic mission of the Kim family in North Korea. The archaic notion of despotic family rule matches the almost medieval hardship the country has suffered under the Kims. Few people thought that a young, untested, unhealthy, Swiss-educated basketball fanatic could hold together a country that should have fallen apart years ago.

    Facing History and Ourselves

    Studies of the 20th c. have found that the last 100 years has seen
    more people die through genocide and state-sanctioned murder
    than on the century’s many battlefields. Effectively responding to
    genocide, ethnic violence, and abuses of human rights is a
    primary challenge of our day.

    The California History-Social Science Framework includes study
    of the Holocaust and other genocides in recent history. The goal
    is to learn why they happened and what can be done to help
    the victims and promote justice. Sadly, these issues apply
    youth and others in the community today as well as history.

    Registration will begin in mid August.
