Since the publication of The Sino-Soviet Split (Princeton University Press) in 2008, I worked on a large book project the Cold War in multiple world regions, funded by several grants from SSHRC and FQRSC. Cold Wars: Asia, the Middle East, Europe was published with Cambridge University in March 2020. Based on archival research on four continents, the book provides a new interpretation of the Cold War from the perspective of smaller and middle powers in three major world regions and addresses the long-term political, economic, intellectual and religious developments that continue to shape the world to this day. I am currently working on another book project on the Cold War in Europe. Teaching Interests: History of International Relations, Cold War, Communist World, Soviet Union and Communist China. Graduate Supervision in History of International Relations.
