On Monday, November 5, 2018, the Clements Center will welcome Sam Kleiner for a talk at the University of Texas at Austin on his newly released book The Flying Tigers.

Kleiner's The Flying Tigers tells the story behind the American pilots who were secretly recruited to defend the nation’s desperate Chinese allies before Pearl Harbor and ended up on the front lines of the war against the Japanese in the Pacific.

Mr. Kleiner is a lawyer based in New York City. He was raised in Tucson, Arizona and holds a BA from Northwestern University, a doctorate in international relations from the University of Oxford, where he was a Marshall Scholar, and a JD from Yale Law School. His writing has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Foreign Policy, and The Atlantic.
