Pugwash Related Projects: Science, Freedom and the American Way
My next book length project is a study of the role of science in so-called soft, or cultural, diplomacy. As I am particularly interested in the role of private, non-governmental organizations and their relationship with the U.S. government, Pugwash is of great interest to me. I have also conducted extensive archival research in the papers of Bentley Glass, who served on the American Pugwash Continuing Committee in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

Research Interests: Science and the Cold War; public diplomacy; diplomatic history; American foreign policy; the history of propaganda

Region of Investigation: United States
Period of Investigation: before 1950, 1951-1960, 1961-1970, 1971-1980
