My research focuses on the international, diplomatic, and economic history of the Cold War, and the conflict’s enduring influence in world politics. My current book project, entitled Disruption: Economic Globalization and the End of the Cold War, explores the political economy of the late Cold War. Drawing on archival research in eight countries and five languages, this manuscript illuminates the key role that the global economic shocks of the 1970s played in bringing the Cold War to a close.
