Congratulations to CPH Fellow Dr. William Steding!

Steding Book - Carter and Reagan







Congratulations to CPH Fellow Dr. William Steding, who recently signed a contract with publisher Palgrave McMillan for his new book: Presidential Faith and Foreign Policy: Jimmy Carter the Disciple and Ronald Reagan the Alchemist

Steding Book Cover

As the title indicates, Steding’s book examines the key role that religion and personal faith played in the foreign policy of these two presidents.

The book will be published in the Spring of 2015.  The CPH will celebrate the occasion by featuring Dr. Steding at our final public event of the year, on April 29, 2015, in Dallas Hall.  You can preview more information on the book by clicking here, or on the book cover to the right.
