Description - Going Critical by Joel S. Wit

Three former U.S. officials who played key roles in the first Korean nuclear crisis trace the intense efforts that led North Korea to freeze its plutonium production program under international inspection, while avoiding a second Korean War. Drawing directly from internal government memorandums, cables, and notes, the authors chronicle the complex web of diplomacy that led to the 1994 Agreed Framework. A decade later, North Korea is back, claiming to possess nuclear weapons and threatening to produce even more.
