Pressestimmen"GOING CRITICAL: THE FIRST NORTH KOREAN NUCLEAR CRISIS presents an authoritative account of the 1994 deal with North Korea... The new book also provides a lively and engaging look into the inner workings of United States foreign policy making that is sure to captivate North Korea specialists and general readers alike." --Graham Allison, International Herald Tribune, 7/24/2004 "Reading Going Critical brought back the tensions and concerns of the earlier nuclear crisis of the 1990s. Of the three books under reivew, this is the most scholarly and the one most likely to have lasting value." --James Hoare, Times Higher Education Supplement, 9/24/2004 "From cabinet meetings is Washington to Geneva talks and North Korean associations with China, GOING CRITICAL is a 'must' for any who would understand the latest issues and their ongoing implications for a nuclear crisis." -- The Bookwatch, 9/4/2004 "... a comprehensive insider's guide to the first North Korean nuclear standoff and an essential tool for comparing today's events to the last round...[The authors] argue convincingly that Washington cannot contract out its foreign policy on an interest as vital as assuring nuclear nonproliferation." --Scott Snyder, Asia Foundation, Foreign Affairs, 7/1/2004 "GOING CRITICAL: THE FIRST NORTH KOREAN NUCLEAR CRISIS presents an authoritative account of the 1994 deal with North Korea... The new book also provides a lively and engaging look into the inner workings of United States foreign policy making that is sure to captivate North Korea specialists and general readers alike." --Graham Allison, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, The New York Times, 7/20/2004 "Written with the rare benefit of special access to US government documents and incorporating the personal experiences of its three authors, all of whom played significant roles in the events of 1993-94, Going Critical recounts in detail the options that the Clinton administration considered at every stage of the story - and thus should prove invaluable to the Bush administration today." --Scott Snyder, Financial Review, 8/27/2004 "Going Critical represents the collective reconstruction of events by three US officials intimately involved in negotiating with North Korea in 1994 leading to the dismantling of plutonium production facilities under international inspection...[It] is definitely the most factual account of the 'first North Korean Nuclear crisis' lent authority by the key negotiators from the American side." --Geoffrey C. Gunn, Faculty of Economics, Nagasaki University, Journal of Contemporary Asia "a 'how to' read for walking the minefield that constitutes relations and dealings with North Korea" --Chris Price, JoongAng Daily, 10/1/2005 "Going Critical is and should remain valuable reading for those interested not only in the North Korean crises of past and present, but in government decision-making, the practice of diplomacy, and non-proliferation more generally." --Sheena E. Chestnut, St. Antony's College, Oxford, Millennium, 11/1/2007
