Kim Jong Il, one of the world's most infamous dictators, rose to power in the mid-1990s in the small East Asian country of North Korea, succeeding his father, Kim Il Sung. Kim Il Sung took power in 1948, and eventually established a state governed by his own version of Communism. Today Kim Jong Il continues his father's tactics of building a powerful cult of personality around himself, while crushing criticism and opposition to his rule with a network of labor camps in which many North Koreans are tortured and killed. These practices have largely cut the country off from the outside world and led to tragedy, including devastating famines. Kim's secrecy and his strict control of information entering or leaving North Korea have also made the nation a largely mysterious place.--From publisher description
