Interview with Sarah Snyder on "From Selma to Moscow: How Human Rights Activists Transformed U.S. Foreign Policy"

CALL FOR PANELISTS (SMH 2019): Nuclear Weapons, 1945-1961: Doctrine, Development, and Strategy

We are seeking two more panelists for the Society for Military History 2019 Annual Meeting. The panel would explore any and all aspects of the development and doctrine of nuclear weapons during the Truman and Eisenhower administrations. Papers that examine policymaking and military strategy/doctrine surrounding nuclear weapons (broadly defined) are particularly welcome. Papers do not necessarily have to focus on the American context.
