An honors graduate from Princeton University, Richard Wilson first worked on Wall Street, then entered the world of U.S. Naval Intelligence from which he retired many years later at the rank of Captain. As a reservist he advised the Joint Chiefs of Staff on strategy in the Vietnam War for which he was commended, oversaw planning for basing at Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean and much more. Following active duty he became Vice President of a management consulting firm which he left three years later to earn M.A. and Ph.D. degrees at Princeton, specializing in comparative politics and Chinese studies. He was a Lecturer at Princeton before moving to Rutgers University where he stayed for many years as University Director of International Programs and Chairman of the Political Science Department with 8,000 students before retiring as a Distinguished Professor Emeritus. During that time he authored/edited 14 books from presses such as MIT, Cambridge and The Free Press and 50 articles, chapters in scholarly monographs and reviews. Much of his research was conducted at various locales in East Asia. Most recently this involved film studies in Seoul and Beijing as well as at the Danish Film Institute in Copenhagen and the British Film Institute in London.

In addition to teaching at Rutgers, he also served as Dean of the Chinese School at Middlebury College, was a Senior Fulbright Scholar at Yonsei University in Korea, a permanent guest professor at Jilin University and Xi’an Jiaotong University in China, a visiting scholar at Peking University, and was Editor-in-Chief of East Asia: An International Quarterly. On the side he owned a highly successful Chinese restaurant. At the present time he is writing novels with his identical twin brother. He currently resides with his wife, Myoung Chung Wilson, in Frenchtown, New Jersey.
