Since the 1990s, the Chinese-North Korean border region has undergone a gradual transformation into a site of intensified cooperation, competition, and intrigue. These changes have prompted a significant volume of critical scholarship and media commentary across multiple languages and disciplines. Drawing on existing studies and new data, Decoding the Sino-North Korean Borderlands brings much of this literature into concert by pulling together a wide range of insight on the region's economics, security, social cohesion, and information flows. Drawing from multilingual sources and transnational scholarship, this volume is enhanced by the extensive fieldwork undertaken by the editors and contributors in their quests to decode the borderland. In doing so, the volume emphasizes the link between theory, methodology, and practice in the field of Area Studies and social science more broadly.

«The editors and contributors should be applauded for tackling an unusually daunting project, given data limitations and the dearth of secondary scholarship to incorporate. They strive to inform readers from diverse angles, adding to awareness of what makes this area fascinating. [...] This is a tough border to crack, and we should be thankful that this intrepid band of researchers had the daring to piece together loose ends into a single book."
- Gilbert Rozman, The China Journal, No. 87 (2022)

"Adam Cathcart, Christopher Green, and Steven Denney’s Decoding the Sino-North Korean Borderlands makes a welcome appearance as the first English-language scholarly edited volume on the region. [...] Scholars interested in the future of both China and North Korea would do well to consult the insights of this exciting new work."
- Joseph A. Seeley, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Pacific Affairs: Volume 94, No. 3 – September 2021»
