Beautiful rare propagandabook from North Korea, published in 1975 about the Juche culture. This book is extremely hard to find and the book find his way into Europe through different political activist groups and persons in the 1970’s.
The book is about the Juche and how it has influenced all aspects of North Korean life, such as architecture, Art, Culture and everyday life.
Juche is the official ideology of North Korea, described by the government as “Kim Il-sung’s original, brilliant and revolutionary contribution to national and international thought”.
It postulates that “man is the master of his destiny”, that the Korean masses are to act as the “masters of the revolution and construction” and that by becoming self-reliant and strong, a nation can achieve true socialism. Kim Il-sung (1912–1994) developed the ideology, which was originally viewed as a variant of Marxism–Leninism until it became distinctly Korean in character.
