This resource is very well designed and presents multiple, appealing formats. The timeline option on the right side titled "FACE OFF" leads to an informative and cleanly displayed timeline highlighting political tensions between North Korea and the US. 


The various topics such as general background, government, military, and economy present basic information about the country in a way that is easy for the user to access. These blocks of information are presented in an apprealing way. Some small pictures are utilized to break the monotony of text and give the website an appealing flow. 


If the site were up to date in the year 2014, it would be an even more valubale resource. Stilll, the information provided is thorough and well organized. A student may still utilize this website when researching general facts about North Korea or North Korean relations with the US up until 2003.
