This book shows the relentless pursuit of the Nobel Peace Prize as the motive for bringing about the inter-Korean summit of June 2000 at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars paid to North Korea's Kim Jong-il - funds used to finance missile and nuclear programs that threaten the region and the world.
