Diplomatic History- Legacies of WWI Commemorative Issue


The September 2014 issue of Diplomatic History commemorates the centennary of World War I and assesses its many legacies.  As David Ekbladh writes in his introductory note, this issue "is an attempt to demonstrate the reach of the conflict both in history and on it" and it draws upon the United States in the world as its "conceptual hub."  Religion, Wilsonianism, international law, memory, and geopolitics are only some of the many approaches used by the authors in this special issue.

Also, as SHAFR President Fredrik Logevall writes in his Presidential Note, "this issue marks a milestone in the life of Diplomatic History" as the editorial office for the journal transitions from the University of Colorado, led by editors Robert Schulzinger and Thomas Zeiler, to Nick Cullather of Indiana Unviersity and Anne Foster of Indiana State University.  SHAFR and its members are indebted to the editorial team at the University of Colorado for their able work leading the journal since 2001.
