Partnership with State Dept. Historian Prompts Workshop, Book

Through a unique collaboration with the U.S. State Department's Office of the Historian, the Maxwell School hosted an interdisciplinary workshop series focused on the evolution of U.S. foreign policy toward China and Iran over six decades. The result is a published book, edited by Associate Professor of History Osamah Khalil, that draws on recently declassified documents and includes contributions from six Maxwell faculty, graduate students and alumni: “United States Relations with China and Iran: Toward the Asian Century” (Bloomsbury Academic, 2019).
