About this Episode

Historian Jennifer Miller joins us to talk about two papers she's written on conservative responses to the rise of East Asia in the latter part of the Cold War. We get into the nitty gritty about international reactionary currents, ahistory in neoconservative thought, overlaps between neocons and Christopher Lasch, and a whole lot else! We were delighted to have her and hope to do so again.

The two papers we discuss:

Let’s Not be Laughed at Anymore: Donald Trump and Japan from the 1980s to the Present

"Neoconservatives and Neo-Confucians: East Asian Growth and the Celebration of Tradition"

Check out Jennifer's book: Cold War Democracy: The United States and Japan.
