August 24, 2016

In this episode of Pacific Pundit, we explain why William Seward is the OG of America’s Asia strategy, debate the origins of the rebalance to Asia under President Obama, and bring on two guests– James Brown (University of Sydney), explaining how Asia and Australia are viewing the United States and China, and Evan Montgomery (Center for Strategic & Budgetary Assessments), discussing the importance of military superiority for any grand strategy. Evan also discusses what his new book, In the Hegemon’s Shadow (Cornell University Press), means for future U.S. strategy toward Asia.
