Abstract

Book Reviews 137 NOTES I. Those who rebu ilt the completely decimated northern cities fol lowing the Korean War had an opportun ity to enshrine the Kim dynasty, and enshrine they did, turning the northern lands cape into in a dynastic theme park (Portal, pp. 81-10 4). In 1956, while Nikita Khr ushchev denounced the cult of personality that Stalin had bu il t in the Soviet Union, a father -son team was bu ilding one at the other end of Eurasia. Secular idols now abou nd, and with the death of the father , Kim II Sung (Kim II -song), the county has a golden mu mmy with a mausoleum to match. He mirrors Mao in Beijing, Ho in Hanoi, and Lenin in Moscow, preserved for posterity. Only Stalin's mummy got the axe; his body cremated and architecturally sealed in the Krem lin wall. 2. Portal recou nted this competition in an earlier book-Korea: Art and Archaeol­ ogy (London: Thames and Hudson, 2000)-but now off ers much more analysis of North Korean cases. 3. Kim reputedly has a personal film collection of over fif teen thousand titles and used to watch a movie nearly every night. 4. Democracy's
