Join the World Affairs Council of Harrisburg for a timely Hot Topics Tea on the looming threat of a nuclear showdown with North Korea. Is the U.S. headed for a confrontation
with the rogue regime, or can China help avoid a nuclear disaster?
Dr. David Lai is a Research Professor of Asian Security Affairs at the Strategic Studies Institute (SSI) of the U.S. Army War College (USAWC). Before joining SSI, Dr. Lai was on the faculty of the U.S. Air War College. Born and raised in China, Lai witnessed China’s “Cultural Revolution,” its economic reform, and changes in China’s foreign relations, the most important of all, U.S.-China relations.
Dr. Lai was one of those who made it into colleges when China launched its economic reform and restored the institutions of higher education in 1978. He later pursued his post-graduate studies at the University of Colorado and earned his Master’s and Ph.D. degrees in political science specializing in international relations.
