Abstract

A newer perspective is needed in studying North Korea's brand of communism that takes note of parallels between the traditional cultural legacies and the ideological rhetoric of chuch'e socialism. In the process of adapting to the cultural context of North Korea, Marxist-Leninist ideology has evolved into an intensely nationalist ideology unique to North Korea. Although Confucianism and Buddhism, as well as Christianity and shamanism, have officially been banned as unscientific superstitions, their cultural legacies linger on.
