Back to Tokyo


I am about to head back to Tokyo after a very productive period in Australia. I really enjoyed having the chance to give a series of research presentations while I was here. I received some great feedback, which will be very helpful as I develop my new project further. I was also happy to find there was quite a bit of interest in my recently published book, The Rise of Democracy. In this regard, it was also good to see a brief but positive review appear in Foreign Affairs by Professor G. John Ikenberry.

Finally, if people in Tokyo want to reach me, I will be back in the office at Waseda and “open for business” as of this Tuesday 15 March 2016.
