Executive Director authors chapter in edited CSIS volume

Will Inboden Feb 13, 2017

Executive Director Will Inboden explores how three mid-twentieth-century presidents transformed the United States in A Global History of the Twentieth Century: Legacies and Lessons from Six National Perspectives, edited by Michael Green and Nicholas Szechenyi. 

Summary: In this volume, a distinguished group of scholars examine the national experiences of six major twentieth-century powers-- the United States, Japan, Turkey, China, India and Germany—to discern the centuries’ legacies for today and the lessons for tomorrow. They explore core themes including anticolonialism, democracy, socialism, nationalism, industrialization, nuclear weapons, and globalization and provide their own personal interpretations of the century, as well as their respective nation’s experiences and historical memory of the era. Together, they provide a broad historical context of the forces that shaped the twentieth century that will be of interest to scholars and students of history as well as policymakers.
