Cold War International History Project (CWIHP) Senior Research Scholar Dr. Bernd Schaefer was quoted in an article on North Korea's missile launch in the most recent issue of Der Spiegel, a weekly German language news maganize. The article, entitled "The next bomb: After the successful rocket launch the world has to expect further provocations from the young dictator,"  features Schaefer contextualizing North Korea's ambition to become a nuclear power as a response to the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, "because, from the North Korean perspective, the Soviet Union retreated in the face of the U.S. and betrayed Cuba."
