Three Days in the Hermit Kingdom
An American Visits North Korea [Kindle Edition] - B003Z0CCHG
Eddie Burdick (Author)
To most of the world, North Korea remains a secretive and mysterious nation, one that has tightly controlled the outflow of information in order to groom its public image. This book chronicles a rare, regime-sanctioned excursion by a North American into the heart of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. What is revealed is often what's expected, such as the adoration of leaders, excursions to national monuments, and exposure to propaganda relating to self-sufficiency. But as a Korean speaker, the author gathered a lot more information than the scripted English narration provided by his Korean guides. Behind the propaganda of the Communist regime, the authentic, eye-opening North Korea is revealed.
Format: Kindle Edition; Print Length: 339 pages; Publisher: McFarland (26 May 2010); Sold by: Amazon Media EU S.ā r.l.; ASIN: B003Z0CCHG

  Sovjet Music  -  MP3
Dear Comrade!    welcome to this modest site. The makers have tried to assemble a small legacy of songs left from the Soviet era. All of them were once widely known and popular in the cities and towns of the glorious Motherland. Some of these songs, even now, are known to practically everyone who has been born and raised in the USSR and other socialistic countries. Others, on the contrary, have been long forgotten, during the course of time. These songs are a monument to a not too distant past, during which the USSR tried to build a new socialist society. It was an interesting time, a time not only of terror and the Gulags, but of "The Great Projects", enthusiasm, victories, and faith in a "bright future for all of humanity." Even regardless of the fact that in the present day, a few of these songs are able to at least bring a smile to one's face, the makers are convinced that we should not deny that which is a part of our history and culture
