Mara Drogan

I received my PhD with distinction in International, Comparative, and Global History from the State University of New York at Albany.

Using case studies of US relations with nations in Europe, Africa, Asia, and Latin America, I show that Atoms for Peace marked an important shift in US foreign policy in the mid-1950s.
