It Takes My Breath Away: Fairbank and Reischauer on East Asia (1967)

Forty six years ago...(Link - video)

Yes, it does belong in the "holy cow" file.


Later - For some sense of the incredible vision of Fairbank in particular, listen to what he says about the United States use of aerial bombing in 1967 and compare it to comedian/commentator's Bill Maher's rant of 13 September 2013.

Michael,
Wonderful video! Thank you! But this makes Caroline Kennedy's nomination all the more depressing.
