CT Clinical Assistant Professor of History Greg Whitesides recently published his latest book Science and American Foreign Relations since World War II (Cambridge Studies in US Foreign Relations). From atomic energy and satellites to the green revolution, his book covers scientific advances central to American diplomacy in the early Cold War, the growth of applied research in the 1970s, and up through today’s headlines on global warming and the war on terror. Science and American Foreign Relations since World War II provides the historical background necessary to understand the contemporary geopolitics of science. Additionally, Whitesides is blogging for Cambridge University Press on science and international affairs. His first blog post: Chang'e-4 and U.S./Chinese Relations in Space.
