I was so honored by this review. I have worked really hard write a book that maintains high scholarly standards but was also accessible, readable, and enjoyable! In a way, I was attempting to democratize the history of Cold War America. At least for this reviewer, it seems that mission was a success! I hope that this book will be read and enjoyed by many and that it will spark new conversations and inspire curiosities that might previously have been hidden in your subconscious!

Here’s a really fun interview I did a few weeks ago. This one is especially useful for grad students or those thinking about grad school. I go into my background and how I developed the ideas for a doctoral study on Peanuts and then what it took to turn that into a book. Enjoy!
