U.S.-North Korea Relations in Historical Perspective

On Saturday, April 6, 2013, Hyun Lee spoke at the Third National Conference of Historians Against the War called "The New Faces of War," which was held at Towson University. Lee, who is affiliated with Nodutdol for Korean Community Development,  participated on a panel called "Understanding and Responding to the Asia-Pacific Pivot." Lee examines the North Korean crisis from an historical perspective and then discusses potential ways out of the crisis. This video was produced by Stephen Roblin and Spencer Compton.
