Today's episode is the seventh in a multi-part series that takes an in-depth look at the history of China's foreign policy. During the Obama administration, US imperialism adopts the "Pivot to Asia" strategy and makes China its top target. At the same time, Xi Jinping becomes China's president and navigates China's rise.
Brian is joined by Kenneth Hammond, a Professor of East Asian and Global History at New Mexico State University and an activist with the organization Pivot to Peace.
