In Global Citizen, the second volume of memoirs of Sir Eldon Griffiths, we find the "MP for Orange County" as he was fondly called, commuting across the Atlantic while serving as Regents Professor at the University of California and founding the School of International Business at Chapman University. Reaching out to southern California's Koreans, Iranians and Vietnamese, he records the dawning of the Pacific century during extended visits to Tokyo, Seoul, Shanghai and Sumatra. Especially revealing are the never before told tales of India, Iran and Australia, and of the author's love affair with freighters and container vessels. Here is history, politics, diplomacy, culture and comedy, all told in a fast paced narrative about the events and people who helped transform America - and much of the world besides - over the past 25 years.
Serving as a member of the British Parliament for 30 years, Sir Eldon also wrote speeches for both Margaret Thatcher and John Major. His twice weekly articles in the Orange County Register were a highlight of the newspaper.
Since coming to the United States 20 years ago, Sir Eldon has been the President of the World Affairs Council of Orange County and is now Chairman of the Board of the National World Affairs Council.
