Recently, Nikolas Kozloff, author of Hugo Chavez: Oil, Politics, and the Challenge to the U.S. (St. Martinâ€™s Press, 2006), sat down with Gonzalo SebastiÃ¡n Paz, a lecturer in international affairs at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. Kozloff is currently working on another book, South Americaâ€™s New Direction (also with St. Martinâ€™s Press), about the geopolitical realignment in South America and its implications for the U.S.
Sebastian Paz is an expert on South Americaâ€™s ties to Asia. He has previously taught graduate courses on the Southern Cone and Latin America at Argentinaâ€™s La Plata National University and the University of Salvador. At those institutions, he also taught courses on international economics and politics with a heavy emphasis on Asia. He is one of the few Argentines to have lived and worked in South Korea, and was the recipient of a Korea Foundation Fellowship.
