He's a political science professor at Rice specializing in foreign conflict.
When the 1991 Gulf War happened (remember, I was only 9!), I saw him doing an interview on a local news station and started crying because I thought that meant he was at war.
Cool! Does he have any published essays? I majored in poli sci at UT and took mostly foreign relations/comparative government classes. I focused on East Asia as much as I could, but still the whole subject is pretty fascinating.
he has lots (just got another one accepted to the journal of conflict resolution, a major journal), although his actual articles are more academic than current eventy. he does a lot of talks and stuff on current events though (just did one yesterday to houston's world affairs council). you can see his CV (with a list of all his articles) here
my god you make me feel old! I was in my sophomore year of college when the Gulf War broke out :P
