Peace and Health Blog welcomes Larry Wittner

January 4, 2011

Lawrence S. Wittner, Professor of History (emeritus)  at the State University of New York in Albany, has joined IPPNW’s Peace and Health blog as a regular contributor. Prof. Wittner is the author of the definitive three-volume The  Struggle Against the Bomb, and the recently published companion piece, Confronting the Bomb: A Short History of the World Nuclear Disarmament Movement.

A former president of the Council on Peace Research in History, Larry also chaired the Peace History Commission of the International Peace Research Association. He has spoken on peace and disarmament topics around the world, most recently at IPPNW’s World Congress in Basel in August 2010. In addition to lifelong involvement in the peace, civil rights, and labor movements, Larry is a musician, and I fully intend to track him down during one of my occasional visits to Albany for a jam on guitar and banjo.

For now, I recommend that you take a look at the articles already posted here, and watch for new pieces as they arrive. You might want to start with “The ‘Golden Rule’ Will Sail Again,” a really uplifting story about a small group of antinuclear protesters in the 1950s who drove the US government bonkers years before the Rainbow Warrior set sail.
