This summer, we've launched a special edition of The Global
Cable - our 'Summer Reading List.' Every other week, we'll release
a new conversation with an author, discussing their latest book and
the inspiration behind it.
This week's guest is Melissa Lee, Assistant Professor of Politics and International Affairs at Princeton University and our next Lightning Scholar at Perry World House. She talks to our host John Gans about her new book, Crippling Leviathan: How Foreign Subversion Weakens the State. She explains why not all nation-states are created equal, how the Internet has become a space for foreign subversion, and how the fight against COVID-19 has impacted her thinking on state capacity in recent months.
