In Response to: Academic Anxiety

I can understand the worry of faculty who are Chinese about the evaluation of their origins by the government here, but is this really new? During the many years of the Cold War were faculty from the USSR and its dependent satellites not also in this unenviable position? I think so, as I recall my academic life and colleagues from 1961 to 2001.
