In the wake of five two-week speaking tours, sponsored by the U.S. State Department, I will talk about viewing U.S. Politics from 10,000 miles away, in terms of my varied audiences and setting, and the relationships between the U. S. and a variety of Asian nations. More generally, I’ll reflect on 20 years of traveling and lecturing for the State Department and how I’ve learned a lot, even as I have taught about the ins and outs of American politics and politicians.
