It is with deep sadness and regret that we announce the passing of Professor Waldemar J. Dziak, our dear friend and long-time lecturer at Collegium Civitas, an outstanding political scientist and specialist in North Korean and Chinese issues.

He was the author and co-author of over 20 books and several hundred scholarly articles, including the following Polish-language works: North Korea. At the Source of the Family Succession of Power (2009); Pyongyang 1956 (2010); Contemporary Political History of the Republic of Korea (2011); Kim Jong Un (2013); The Chinese People’s Liberation Army (2014); Tibet.
