AOPSSS #24 “The Wages of Containment: State-Building, American Grand Strategy, and the Cold War in Europe and East Asia”

In our twenty-fourth AOPSSS session, co-organized with the Cambridge University Press Taiwan Studies Series, James Lee (UCSD) presented his new book on how the international politics of the Cold War affected the United States’ strategy toward state-building in Europe and East Asia after the Second World War. Sheena Greitens (University of Texas, Austin), Koji Kagotani (Osaka University of Economics), Jeehye Kim (British Columbia) and Hans H. Tung (National Taiwan University) offered thoughtful comments on the theoretical argument and cases. Looking forward to seeing the book out in print!
