He is currently completing a book on the cultural Cold War in China and Hong Kong from to His research interests include the Second World War, Cold War, US-China relations, cultural policy, and Chinese. Description of the book "Modern Mind: An Intellectual History of the 20th Century": From Freud to Babbitt, from Animal Farm to Sartre to the Great Society, from the Theory of Relativity to counterculture to Kosovo, The Modern Mind is encyclopedic, covering the major writers, artists, scientists, and philosophers who produced the ideas by which we live.   And for China, that’s a history that stretches backs thousands of years.
