Publication Details

Author Information: Eric A. Hyer, Associate Professor of political science at Brigham Young University and Asian studies coordinator at the Kennedy Center, has traveled extensively within China, Tibet, and twice traversed the Karakorum Highway between western China and Pakistan. Hyer’s research focuses on China’s foreign relations—especially relations with its neighbors. His field research has taken him to Russia, Vietnam, Mongolia, and along China’s border with Central Asia. He is the author of articles about China’s arms sales, territorial disputes, and nationalities issues and is in the process of completing a book on China’s boundary disputes and settlements. Hyer was a visiting scholar at the Foreign Affairs College in Beijing (1995–96). He received a PhD in political science from Columbia University in 1990.
