Hidden Aspects

A book titled 'A Hidden Aspect of Relations Between Japan and North Korea in Postwar Era' was published. The book was coauthoured by Professor Mitsuhiko Kimura, School fo International Politics, Economics and Communication, Aoyama Gakuin University, Tokyo and Mr Keiji Abe, Foremer Director of Tsukuba Management Office, Organization for Promoting Chemical Techonologica Starategy in Japan.

The Abstract of the book describes as follows:

「This book discusses a long-hidden aspect of postwar Japanese-North Korean relations, that is , North Korean acquistition of Japanese advanced technology and products and its related intelligence in Japan. This aspect recenttly has come to attract considerable attention in Japan regarding North Korean nuclear and missile developments, because of suspicion that licitly or illicitly imported Japanese machine, chemical, metl and other products have plyaed an important role in those developments. In fact, North Korea did use many kinds of Japanese products for them. Moreover, use of Japanese products has been a common phenomenon in military construction in North Korea. This is because Kim Il-sung rioritized the military buildup from the very satart of the foundation of the state and strategically pushed for imports of Japanese products for that purpose. This book examines the process above in detail, using data on Japanese exports to North Korea from early 1960s on and related information form formal and informal sources. Noting that North Korea politically had strong backing of the Soviet Union, this book also looks into North Koreqan acquisition of products from the Soviet Union and finds that the role of thiose products in North Korean military-industrialization was quite limited as against conventional wisdom. A major reason for this was that the Soviet Union, lacking an internal mechanism producing a ceaseless flow of technological invention, was incapable of providing North Korea with the products in need, especially, high quality industrial material and precision machines. Further, this book discusses recent emergence of China, in replacement of Japan, as a leading supplier of manufactured products for North Korea, as a result of both tightened Japanese export ocntrol and Chinese industrial growth. We note in conclusion that the overall North Korean acquisition and employment of Japanese technology and products is ultimately derived from a sharp contrast in nature of regimes between North Korea and Japan, that is, the former being militarist and the latter pacifist almost to the extreme each other. Afuture task is to discuss, from the same perspective, relations between Japan on the one hand and the Soviet Union and China on the other. This will have profound implications for study of impacts of Japanese industrial development cum  popular pacifist policy on world politics in the cold war era.」

戦後日朝関係の研究が出版された。対日工作と物資調達という副題がついている。青山学院大学教授の木村光彦教授と、前化学技術戦略推進機構研究開発事業部つくば管理ジム所長の阿部桂司氏の共著である。

裏表紙には次のように記載されている。

「戦後の日朝関係についてはその社会的重要性に見合う十分な研究が行われてこなかった。北朝鮮の側に立つ特定の見解や興味本位の議論が多く、分析的な考察はとぼしかった。本書はそれらの限界を越えて<対日工作と物資調達>という新たな視点から膨大な資料群を駆使し、北朝鮮が我が国とどのように関わろうとしたのかを明らかにする。

工作とは暗殺、破壊活動、拉致、各界有力者の抱き込み、直轄組織の構築などが主要な任務である。このうち本書では政財界やジャーナリズム、反政府活動家、公共団体職員、市民などの抱きこみと、主として直轄組織である朝鮮総聨の活動を分析する。又物資調達については、核・ミサイル開発に限らず北朝鮮の国家戦略の根幹をなす軍事工業全般に関わる問題を考察する。とくに精密機械や高品質素材の調達による先端技術の移転と、多くの民政品が兵器製造に転用されたことを重視して、その技術的転換の実態を解明する。

本書の発掘した多くの知見は、「国家の安全保障」を再考する上で有益な示唆となろう」

日朝関係史の必読書となることは、ほぼ間違いない。
