During the past 10 years he has authored three books and more than 100 articles, reports and monographs on North Korea. His two most recent books: "North Korean Special Forces- 2nd Edition" and "Terrorism: The North Korean Connection" are considered by many to be the definitive "open source" works on their subjects and have been translated into Korean and Japanese. His latest book "The Armed Forces of North Korea," also follows in this tradition.
Mr. Bermudez has lectured extensively in the academic and government environments, both in the US (e.g., Columbia University, FBI, US Army Intelligence, US Naval Intelligence, etc.) and the Republic of Korea (e.g., National Defense College, etc.). He has also testified before Congress on several occasions as a subject matter expert concerning North Korea's ballistic missile and nuclear, chemical and biological warfare programs.
