Dear Fellow Historians, I am a newly minted PhD currently writing a paper for the Journal of Policy History Conference 2016 in Nashville on the influence of Adlai Stevenson 's foreign policy ideas and advocacy on the 1960s. This paper will also show the importance of the 1956 election. The paper will fit the following panels:
Foreign policy formation in the 1950s and 1960s
Second look at landslide elections
party politics in election years
modern Democratic party politics
modern American liberalism
I’m delighted to announce the recent publication of two books. Both are available in hard cover, paperback, and e-book versions.
1. Mark Solovey, Shaky Foundations: The Politics-Patronage-Social Science Nexus in Cold War America (Rutgers University Press, 2013hb/2015pb).
