A Careful Globalization: The Roots of America’s Global Entanglement with China in the 1980s.
Federico Pachetti researches and teaches 20th century international history, with a focus on how shifting dynamics in global political economy shaped the evolution of Sino-American relations during the final decades of the century. He is working on a book manuscript that explores the assistance American and international economic institutions provided to the People’s Republic of China (PRC)’s economic reforms during the 1980s. The book will bring together several fields, such as the history of capitalism, US foreign policy, and the history of Chinese economic reforms, tracing the origins of the institutionalization that led to the economic entanglement between the two countries within the context of the emerging financial globalization.
Dr. Pachetti specializes in the history of 20th century Sino-American relations, the history of globalization, and the history of post-1945 international economic institutions. He is now a junior post-doctoral fellow at Corvinus Institute of Advanced Studies (CIAS), Budapest. Previously, he held positions at New York University (NYU) Shanghai and at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
Pachetti received his Ph.D. in global history from the University of Hong Kong. He also holds two Master Degrees, one in History of International Relations from LSE, the other in International Relations and European Studies from the University of Florence. He completed his Bachelor in Political Science and International Relations at the University of Pisa.
