While you are waiting
As usual, our recent attendance at the AAS annual meeting in Toronto allowed us to film interviews with a few authors. The first to go live on YouTube was with Professor David I. Steinberg of Georgetown University.
Here he discusses the evolving Sino-Burmese relationship as well as the strategic importance of Myanmar/Burma to China, the United States, India and other neighbouring countries. His monograph, Modern China–Myanmar Relations, co-authored with Hongwei Fan of Xiamen University, is currently being printed. The first copies should be available later this month but, while you are waiting, you might find the interview interesting.
Apologies for the film quality. Our usual movie camera died so all the Toronto interviews were filmed using an iPad (not that bad a quality but much heavier to hold and thus keep steady).
