America and the Postwar World: Remaking International Society, 1945-1956 (Routledge, 2018)
The main tide of International Relations scholarship on the first years after World War II sweeps towards Cold War accounts: these have emphasised the United States and USSR in a context of geopolitical rivalry. By contrast, this book examines a past that ran concurrent with the Cold War and interacted with it, but which usefully can also be read as separable.

The novel explores the themes of identity, sexuality, friendship and belief, and is an original study of a powerless, melancholy god living in exile in the Eternal City.
