Brett S. MorrisBrett S. Morris is a freelance writer and journalist who studies US foreign policy. He is particularly interested in such topics as the current remilitarization of Japan, the “rise of China,” North/South Korean relations, the US “pivot” to Asia, the legacy of past conflicts such as the Vietnam War (especially the problems of unexploded ordnance in Laos and Agent Orange in Vietnam), and the Khmer Rouge.

His work has been featured in Vox, Jacobin and CounterPunch.
