In May 1998, President Bill Clinton labeled South Asia “the most dangerous place on earth,” following nuclear tests in India and Pakistan. Eight years later, in March 2006, President George W. Bush would visit India and announce a pact that resumed nuclear cooperation between that country and the United States.

How did things change so dramatically? That’s the topic of the first brown bag lecture for fall 2006 from the Texas A&M University-Kingsville physics/geosciences department, scheduled for Friday, Nov. 3, at noon in room 140 of Manning Hall.

Dr. Mario Carranza, professor and chair of the political science department, will present the lecture, “From Non-Proliferation to Post-Proliferation: Explaining the About-Face in U.S. Policy toward South Asia, From Clinton to Bush.”

Carranza is a specialist in regional integration in the Western Hemisphere and nuclear proliferation in South Asia, about which he has written a number of articles featured in publications that include the Asia Survey, the Non-Proliferation Review and Contemporary Security Policy. He is the author of the book South American Free Trade Area of the Americas? Open Regionalism and the Future of
Regional Economic Integration in South America
. In 2003, Carranza was a recipient of the Distinguished Research Award from the Javelina Alumni Association.

The public is invited to attend and bring a lunch to this free event.
