The book is unique in that instead of focusing on the victims as most books do, it collects the stories of former Khmer Rouge, giving insights into the functioning of the regime and approaching the question of how such a regime could take place.

Engagement with rogue regimes is not cost-free, as Michael Rubin demonstrates by tracing the history of American diplomacy with North Korea, Iran, Iraq, Libya, the Taliban’s Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Further challenges to traditional diplomacy have come from terrorist groups, such as the PLO in the s and s, or Hamas and Hezbollah in Cited by: 3.

"Rogue Regime" by Jasper Becker contains interesting information, but many of his assertions are not properly footnoted. The book is also very poorly edited--even containing some grammatical errors.

So writes foreign correspondent Becker (The Chinese,etc.), who reveals that at least one node on the so-called Axis of Evil is a nasty and dangerous place indeed.

Plot. The protagonist, an unnamed British sportsman, sets out in the spring of to see if he can get an unnamed European dictator in the sights of his rifle. Rogue Regimes makes a contribution to theory by explaining the emergence of rogue states and the rise of freelancers.

Also in the transition from the Cold War to the post-Cold War era, the book explains the shift in the nature of threat perception in the West across levels of analysis. The most notorious of these centres was the S jail in Phnom Penh, Tuol Sleng, where as many as 17, men, women and children were imprisoned during the regime's four years in power.

North Korea is the quintessential rogue regime, and its end may only come after a terrifying war. The term “rogue state” is reserved only for the most incorrigible in the international system.ROGUE REGIME: Kim Jong Il and the Looming Threat of North Korea Jasper Becker, Author.
