Halperin (born June 13, 1938) is an American expert on foreign policy and civil liberties. He served in the Johnson, Nixon, and Clinton administrations and in a number of roles with think tanks and universities such as the Council on Foreign Relations and Harvard University. He is currently Senior Advisor for the Open Society Institute which was founded by George Soros." From an obituary posted on-line: "Arthur Doak Barnett, a leading scholar and government adviser on China was 77. Born to missionary parents in Shanghai in 1921, Mr. Barnett, who used his middle name, was among the most prolific writers about Chinese affairs. But he was best known for working behind the scenes in Congress and the Executive branch to improve relations between China and the United States. His influence always seemed to be greater than indicated by his official positions, which included a long stint at the Brookings Institution in Washington and teaching posts at Columbia and Johns Hopkins universities. Prior to his death in 1999, he ran a salon on China policy that moved from his living room in McLean, Va., to those of other participants, including analysts from the Central Intelligence Agency, academic specialists and current and former ambassadors. In 1966 he was the principal witness for an extensive review of China policy conducted by Senator J. William Fulbright, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. At the time China was regarded as an implacable enemy of the United States, a supporter of the North Vietnamese war effort and a virulent force seeking to topple democratic governments like so many dominoes."
