ROK Socialist Trade as a Transnational Phenomenon

  • Dan C. Sanford


We find ourselves in a world that reminds us more of the extensive and curious chessboard in Lewis Caroll’s Through the Looking Glass than of more conventional versions of that ancient game. The players are not always what they seem, and the terrain of the chessboards may suddenly change from garden to shop to castle. Thus, in contemporary world politics not all players on the chessboards are states, and the varying terrains of the chessboards constrain state behavior. Some are more suited to the use of force, others ahnost totally unsuited to it. Different chessboards favor different states.1
