The Life, Career, and Legacies of Richard M. Nixon

The Journal of American Studies of Turkey (JAST) is preparing a special Richard M. Nixon issue devoted to focusing on the meaning and legacies both inside and outside the United States of this controversial figure in American history and culture. August 2014 will mark the fortieth anniversary of Nixon's dramatic resignation as president of the United States, and still his place in American history is very much under dispute. This anniversary, four decades after Watergate, is timely for a fresh look at Nixon's career and legacy. Proposals for papers should be sent to the editor, Laurence Raw (l_rawjalaurence@yahoo.com) or the issue editor Roger Chapman (Roger_Chapman@pba.edu). The length is flexible; we invite longer papers (between 5,000-7,000 words) as well as "think-pieces" (1,500-2,000 words). Book reviews of material relating to Nixon are also welcome: any suggestions would be gratefully received. The due date for submission of proposals is April 30, 2014; the date for completed papers September 30, 2014. Read more >
