About the Author

K?ji Takazawa is a former student activist who later went on to become a prolific author, editor, and independent investigative journalist. He is a leading authority on the Japanese New Left and has close ties to some of its surviving participants and institutions.

Patricia G. Steinhoff is professor of sociology at the University of Hawai‘i at M?noa.


Takazawa describes how the group, originally part of the Japanese New Left, was systematically brainwashed to be ardent followers of Juche, the official ideology of North Korea as established in 1972 by Kim Il Sung. . . . Takazawa's detailed research, which included numerous trips to North Korea and interviews with Yodog? group members, makes this important reading for those who want to understand radical revolutionary movements, particularly in East Asia.- Publishers Weekly
