Our second issue for 2015 is a commemorative issue co-edited with University of Kentucky doctoral candidate Cody J. Foster. Our focus is the history and legacy of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. This issue features a series of op-eds written by Mr. Foster’s students in his undergraduate course on diplomatic history – I am certain that you will find their work at once insightful and engaging.
