PC professor to talk of new book

Peninsula College history professor Michael Cassella-Blackburn will discuss his recent book, created during his 2018-2019 sabbatical, at the next Studium Generale set for 12:35 p.m. Thursday, June 13, in the Little Theater at Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

“Radical Anti-Communism in American Politics after World War II, 1945-1950: William C. Bullitt and the Campaign to Save China” was published this year and will be the focus of the event. The book centers on how and why Bullitt and the China Lobby used fear to radicalize anti-communism. They did this through publications, testimonies before Congress, speeches, etc. Their intent was to influence the public to push the Truman administration to change its foreign policy concerning Nationalist China.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Dr. Kate Reavey at kreavey@pencol.edu.
