Andrew S. Natsios, administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development, spoke on April 30, 2002 at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars about the causes and consequences of the mid-1990s famine in North Korea--the subject of his new book, The Great North Korean Famine, published by the U.S. Institute of Peace Press.
