Professor Alfred McCoy is the Harrington Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

In this conversation we talk about run-ins with the CIA, world order and empire over the past 500 years, the duality of raw power and principle, the fading of US empire and the rise of China, as well as the prospects for world order in a context of climate breakdown.
