Apr 24, 2013

NPIHP is pleased to announce the publication of a new journal article by NPIHP partner Eliza Gheorghe.

In "Atomic Maverick: Romania's Negotiations for Nuclear Technology, 1964-1970" (Cold War History, Volume 13, Issue 2, 2013) Gheorghe argues that Romania's turn to the west during the 1960s was caused in part by Moscow's reluctance to share nuclear technology with Bucharest. Moreover, by acting as an interlocutor between the United States and Vietnam, Romania was able to secure high-level US support for a  nuclear cooperation agreement with Canada.
