In South America, China and the U.S. Battle it Out

Recently, Nikolas Kozloff, author of Hugo Chavez: Oil, Politics, and the Challenge to the U.S. (St. Martin’s Press, 2006), sat down with Gonzalo Sebastián Paz, a lecturer in international affairs at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.  Kozloff is currently working on another book, South America’s New Direction (also with St. Martin’s Press), about the geopolitical realignment in South America and its implications for the U.S.


Sebastian Paz is an expert on South America’s ties to Asia.  He has previously taught graduate courses on the Southern Cone and Latin America at Argentina’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.
