Jerry Maguire and Sino-US cooperation on Afghanistan
My new post over at Registan explores the possibility of a "help me help you" posture toward the U.S. pressuring Chinese counterparts to help jump-start the Taliban reconciliation talks. You can find it here.
In other news, I'm currently reading Albert Hirschman's Exit, Voice, and Loyalty . I first heard of Hirschman when he passed away and several folks in the IR blogging community noted his passing. The book has fascinating insights that might be applied to the Chinese Communist Party. I plan to do a write up before I fall silent for most of July as I do extensive globe trotting.
