Khalil edits volume based on US and the World Workshop
Bringing together an interdisciplinary group of experts, United
States Relations with China and Iran examines the past, present,
and future of U.S. foreign relations toward the People's Republic of China and
the Islamic Republic of Iran. Edited by Osamah Khalil, associate professor of
history in the Maxwell School, the forthcoming volume from Bloomsbury Academic
benefits from recently declassified documents and a transnational approach. In
assessing U.S. foreign policy towards China and Iran over the past six decades,
the volume focuses on several key themes: interaction, normalization, and confrontation.
United States Relations with China and Iran provides an insight into how and
why Washington has developed and implemented its policies toward Beijing and
Tehran, and examines how China and Iran have developed policies toward the
United States and internationally. Finally, it draws on the insights of leading
scholars discussing the future of relations between Beijing and Tehran.
The volume is the product of the inaugural U.S. and the
World Workshop hosted by the Maxwell School in September 2017. The workshop was
developed in conjunction with the U.S. State Department’s Office of the
Historian and featured Maxwell faculty and graduate students, and leading
scholars. It was co-sponsored by the Moynihan Institute, the Middle Eastern and
East Asian Studies Programs, and the History, International Relations, and
Political Science Departments.
