Beschreibung

lt;p>This book explores Eleanor Roosevelt's involvement in the global campaign for nuclear disarmament. Based on an extensive multi-archival research, it assesses her overall contribution to the global anti-nuclear campaign of the early cold war and shows how she constantly tried to raise awareness of the real hazards of nuclear testing. She strove to educate the general public about the implications of the nuclear arms race and, in doing so, she became for many a trustworthy anti-nuclear leader and a reliable voice of conscience.



Dario Fazzi works as researcher at the Roosevelt Study Center (RSC) in Middelburg, the Netherlands, and has been visiting professor at several Dutch, Belgian, and Italian universities. He has published articles on nuclear historiography, American and European anti-nuclear protests, and transatlantic movements. He has also been project assistant for the Leiden University Rooseveltian Century MOOC.
