International Security Studies presents a conversation with historian Susan Colbourn on her new book, “Euromissiles: The Nuclear Weapons That Nearly Destroyed NATO”. Euromissiles is a history of diplomacy and alliances, social movements and strategy, nuclear weapons and nagging fears, and politics. To tell that history, Colbourn takes a long view of the strategic crisis—from the emerging dilemmas of allied defense in the early 1950s through the aftermath of the INF Treaty 35 years later. The result is a dramatic and sweeping tale that changes the way we think about the Cold War and its culmination.
A diplomatic and international historian, Susan Colbourn specializes in the history of the Cold War with a focus on NATO, the politics of European security, and the role of nuclear weapons in international politics and society. She is associate director of the Program in American Grand Strategy at Duke University.
Free and open to the Yale community.
