SHAFR 2019 Panel: National Security State

I am looking to form a panel on how the National Security State developed during the Cold War for SHAFR 2019. My paper is entitled, "Nixon's War: Fighting the Institutional State." It will examine Nixon's attempts to centralize power in the presidency, and reshape the National Security State to maximize (his) presidential prerogatives.

Re: Breaking History podcast: Episode 26- Cold War Legacies Roundtable

"the propagandistic triumph of neoliberal capitalism"?

I sense that is not the only "propagandistic" thing about this podcast. It is worth pointing out that in this age of "neoliberal capitalism," the spread of human betterment to vast, formerly famine-endangered regions in Asia and other parts of the world has advanced more rapidly than at any time before in history. (See the work of Angus Maddison on this.) I wonder if the springs of that development, which is a fundamental feature of the modern world, are considered here. They should be.
