Euromissiles: A Transatlantic History
Often termed the "last battle of the Cold War," the Euromissiles Crisis threatened the very foundations of the Atlantic Alliance. Western policymakers worried about eroding support for NATO, as protestors took to the streets to denounce the Alliance's nuclear policies. My current research explores the rise and fall of this arms race in Europe, considering the intersections between East-West relations, intra-Alliance deliberations, and civil society. Euromissiles: A Transatlantic History incorporates multi-lingual materials from both sides of the Atlantic, including national archival collections, materials from the NATO Archives, press coverage, and protest materials, to understand how and why NATO survived.
