This page was first launched in 1997 and by next year will be eligible to vote in the 2018 mid-term elections.  It makes no pretensions to 21st century flair or glitz, but nonetheless fulfills its basic purpose of serving as an initial access point for the courses I teach at Georgetown, plus providing a  quick link for sending me email.

My courses for 2017-2018 are:
History of China
    China: Origins and Imperium (fall)
    China in Transition, 1583-1989 (spring)
History of Japan I (fall only)
