In constructing a theoretical approach to analyzing issues on the Korean peninsula with Chinese characteristics, this chapter argues, first, that North Korea should be seen as a rational actor in international affairs; and, second, that the security structure on the Korean peninsula should be recognized as asymmetric.

In addition, it insists on an approach to studying Korean peninsula issues that is objective and independent.
