Sino-American Competition in the Third World

Greeting H-PRC:

I wanted to share a recent video from C-Span featuring a talk that I gave for the Natioanl History Seminar in May. The subject was my book: Winning the Third World: Sino-American Competition in the Third World. The book will be the subject of a round table on H-Diplo later in the year.

I realize that the judicious study of evidence has since come to be seen as rather ”old school” or ”retro” and that facts no longer carry quite the same weight as does, for example, faith.
