A.B. Abrams contacted me about his new book, "Power and Primacy - The History of Western Intervention in the Asia-Pacific", and I was intrigued, since it is about Asian history as a whole and not about a particular time period or country. I'm glad I did, because it is a helluva good read. It really puts the headlines into proper perspective and what they mean behind all the mainstream propaganda spin.

"Power and Primacy" is one of the most thoroughly researched books I've ever read, with over 1,000 references, which A.B. lists at the end of each chapter. It is so informative and surprising that I took pages of notes and will surely be citing his book in my future writings.

A.B. Answer 1: My primary field of expertise is the politics and history of the Asia-Pacific region. I have spent time in all countries of northeast Asia and many in Southeast Asia, and speak the four major languages of the region. East Asian politics and recent history were my primary focuses throughout my academic years and since.
