North Korea’s rapidly expanding nuclear weapons program threatens world peace and poses enormous policy and military challenges for the United States.

In its 72nd Public Square, the Richmond Times-Dispatch offers an inside look at the history, politics, culture and tensions on the divided Korean Peninsula as seen by local Korean-Americans, veterans who have served in South Korea and experts on the region.
