August 28, 2012

Dr. Jeremy Friedman is the incoming Associate Director of the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy.  A graduate of Stanford and Princeton, he teaches the history of modern Russia, China, and the Cold War in the context of broader themes of socialism, imperialism, nationalism, and decolonization, as well as administering the seminar “Studies in Grand Strategy.”  He is currently completing a manuscript entitled “Shadow Cold War: the Sino-Soviet Split and the ‘Third World’.”  His new book project will tackle the influence of the ‘Second World’ on the trajectory of post-colonial socialist revolution in the ‘Third,’ using Indonesia, Tanzania, Chile, Angola, and Iran as case studies.
