In this unique and insightful book, Markus Bell explores the hidden histories of the men, women, and children who traveled from Japan to the world's most secretive state-North Korea.

Through vivid ethnographic details and interviews with North Korean escapees, Outsiders: Memories of Migration to and from North Korea reveals the driving forces that propelled thousands of ordinary people to risk it all in Kim Il-Sung's "Worker's Paradise", only to escape back to Japan half a century later.
