While there, he traveled widely in the region and in the country, visiting every Chinese province except lonely Jiangxi.

    His views on international affairs have been widely quoted, including in MSNBC, NPR, the New York Times, the Washington Post, The Atlantic, Slate, the BBC, and Al-Jazeera, among others; and in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese, and Vietnamese media.

While in Beijing, he served on the board of the Foreign Correspondent’s Club of China, and, when the sky wasn’t the color of glue, was an avid runner.
