From Selma to Moscow: Sarah B. Snyder with Craig Daigle

During a time of increased concern for the rights of their fellow citizens—civil and political rights, as well as the social and economic rights that Great Society programs sought to secure—many Americans saw inconsistencies between domestic and foreign policy and advocated for a new approach. In From Selma to MoscowSarah B. Snyder shows how domestic social movements spurred a form of activism that ultimately led to legislation to curb military and economic assistance to repressive governments, created institutions to monitor human rights internationally, and enshrined these values in U.S. foreign policy for years to come.
