Register now for WACA's Cover to Cover conference call today, July 24, at 9:00-9:30 am ET , featuring Anna Fifield, Beijing Bureau Chief at The Washington Post, on her new book The Great Successor: The Divinely Perfect Destiny of Brilliant Comrade Kim Jong Un.

Anna Fifield reconstructs Kim Jong Un'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, and Swiss-educated basketball fanatic could hold together a country that should have fallen apart years ago.
