Event Description

Since the break-up of the Soviet Union, the independent countries of Central Europe -- resource-rich and politically unstable -- have played a little-discussed role in Sino-U.S. relations. Join David Denoon as he talks about the behavior and strategies of the United States and China as they compete for influence in Central Asia, drawing a comparison to Southeast Asia. His book China, the United States and the Future of Central Asia: Vol. I (2015), is part of a three-volume series on U.S.-China relations in Central Asia, Southeast Asia, and Latin America, and will be available for purchase at the program.

A reception will follow.

This lecture is a part of C.V. Starr Lecture Series on U.S.-China Relations.
