Korean Peninsula Affairs Center presents: Leon V. Sigal on Not All Options Are Bad: A Strategy for Dealing with North Korea 

The history of nuclear diplomacy with North Korea has been misread. Negotiations have had some success – and could again – if give-and-take is sustained enough to test North Korea's intentions.

Leon V. Sigal is director of the Northeast Asia Cooperative Security Project at the Social Science Research Council in New York. His book, Disarming Strangers: Nuclear Diplomacy with North Korea, published by Princeton University Press, was one of five nominees for the Lionel Gelber Prize as the most outstanding book in international relations for 1997-98 and was named the 1998 book of distinction by the American Academy of Diplomacy. Sigal was a member of the editorial board of The New York Times from 1989 to 1995. He served in the Bureau of Politico-Military Affairs at the U.S. Department of State, in 1979 as International Affairs Fellow and in 1980 as Special Assistant to the Director.
