to my world
of international history!
I’m the Everett H. Emerson Professor of History Emeritus at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
My main interests remain U.S. foreign relations and contemporary global history.
This website provides a window on my earlier and current activities including book publications, services to the profession, and public engagement.
I have been offering online commentary on U.S. foreign relations for several years. A full set is gathered together here on the “On Washington and the World” page: See Blog Posts
I am delighted to announce that Oxford University Press has become the publisher of The World Transformed: 1945 to the Present.
The second edition of the main text (revised and updated with two new chapters) is now available.
The Documentary Reader appeared in a revised and updated edition in Spring. These two volumes, which have proven their appeal and effectiveness in the classroom, should stay fresh in Oxford’s good hands.
