About Me:
I define "international history" broadly. My research examines the interactions between states, peoples, and cultures -- especially in the twentieth century. I am interested in the decisions of leaders and institutions, as well as the influence of ideas and social movements. Through multiarchival research I hope to "globalize" our understanding of relations among societies and America's often contested place in the world. My teaching applies this international approach to the history of American foreign relations since the eighteenth century (History 433 and 434), the global upheavals of the 1960s (History 600), great power relations since 1815 (History 901), the global history of the Cold War (History 753), and the history of imperialism (History 703).

FDL Book Salon Welcomes Gordon Goldstein, Lessons in Disaster

By: Sunday January 10, 2010 2:00 pm

Gordon Goldstein’s Lessons in Disaster (Holt, 2008) is a remarkable and very relevant book. The author spent more than a year working with an icon from the second half of the twentieth century, McGeorge Bundy, as he struggled to compose his memoirs. Bundy was one of the most influential figures in a postwar generation of smart, energetic, confident, well-born men who transformed universities, politics, and foreign policy in Cold War America. As Goldstein explains, Bundy was the central character in David Halberstam’s rueful parable of The Best and the Brightest. He was one of the Masters of the Universe who brought the United States into a terribly self-defeating and enormously destructive war in Vietnam. Readers today might naturally wonder about the parallels with the architects of the twenty-first century wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as the investment strategies and corporate management philosophies that brought the world economy to its knees.
