Hinata-Yamaguchi analyzes North Korea's defense planning by looking at how political, economic, and societal factors affect the Korean People's Army's (KPA) readiness and strategies. He answers four key questions: How have the internal and external factors shaped North Korea's security strategy? How do the political, economic, societal, and environmental factors impact North Korea's defense planning? What are North Korea's defense planning dilemmas and how do they impact the KPA's readiness? What are the key implications for regional security and the strategies against North Korea?

This analysis, drawing on various Korean, English, Japanese, and Chinese sources on North Korea and military affairs, will be of great value to strategists and policy analysts as well as scholars of East Asian security issues.
