The End of the Asian Century:
Donald Trump, China, Kim Jong Un, and the Crisis of Geopolitics
In his highly acclaimed book The End of the Asian Century: War, Stagnation, and the Risks to the World’s Most Dynamic Region, Michael Auslin provides a realistic view of the numerous challenges facing the nations of Asia, thus cautioning those who have expected a prosperous, stable, and even preeminent Asian century. Within that analysis, in his address here, he will emphasize the dangers of the geopolitical mix of Trump, Kim Jung Un, and China. The evening should provide a deepened understanding of the geopolitics of Asia, as well as a better informed view of the possible ramifications of the North Korea crisis.
Dr. Auslin received a BSc from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service, an MA in Russian Studies from Indiana University, and a Ph.D. in History from the University of Illinois. Before joining the Hoover Institution, he was a resident scholar and Director of Japanese Studies at the American Enterprise Institute for a decade, and earlier an Associate Professor of History at Yale University for seven years. He also has been a visiting researcher at the Graduate School of Law at Kobe University and a visiting professor in the Faculty of Law at Tokyo University. Serious professional work on national security and foreign policy parallels and informs his work on Asia.
It is a great pleasure to welcome Dr. Michael R. Auslin to the Council.
