Klaus Larres is an expert on U.S. and European foreign relations, globalization and global governance during the Cold War and in our current age of transition and turmoil. His work focuses on transatlantic relations (including security and economic relations), the global impact of post-1945 American hegemony, European politics (in particular German and British politics) and U.S. foreign relations. More recently he has focused on American and German policies toward China and S.E. Asia as well as Putin’s Russia. Larres also continues working on the politics of Winston Churchill and global order and leadership issues in the 20th and 21st centuries.
