Horns of a Dilemma: Empire of Dominoes – Britain, Southeast Asian Anti-Communism, and U.S. Hegemony

March 11, 2019

In this episode of Horns of a Dilemma, Wen-Qing Ngoei, assistant professor of history at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, argues that British neo-colonial strategies and anti-communist nationalism in Southeast Asia intersected with pre-existing local antipathy towards China to prompt a shift in the region from European-dominated colonialism to U.S. hegemony. This talk took place at the University of Texas at Austin and was sponsored by the Clements Center.
