Ryan Irwin

Ryan Irwin writes about U.S. and the World history.  His first book, Gordian Knot: Apartheid and the Unmaking of the Liberal World Order, explored how African independence altered the international system at the height of the Cold War.  His current book examines what the Free World meant to its architects during the mid-twentieth century.  He's also drafting some thoughts about Daniel Patrick Moynihan.
