Dear H-Diplo readers, As we begin another academic year of H-Diplo publications, we would like to thank our volunteer editors, who are responsible for the functioning of the list and our large publication program. They have made H-Diplo one of the most relevant and important open-access scholarly resources on the Internet, and the global flagship list for all scholars of diplomatic history and international relations. Our subscriber base continues to expand (H-Diplo is one of the largest H-Net lists), and our website attracts an increasing number of visits, many of which involve new visitors. Last year we published a record 174 in-house reviews and publications. Tom Maddux (CSU Northridge), whom most of you know as our prolific review editor, is responsible for the vast majority of our publications; last year he organized over fifty roundtable reviews and an even larger number of article reviews and review essays. We simply could not function without him. Tom works with a number of equally dedicated area specialists: Andy DeRoche (Front Range Community College), Christopher Endy (California State University, Los Angeles), Sergey Radchenko (University of Aberystwyth), Matt J. Schumann (Eastern Michigan University), Dustin Walcher (Southern Oregon University), and Yafeng Xia (Long Island University). Last year Jonathan Reed Winkler (Wright State University) resigned as review editor. We thank him for his years of service to H-Diplo. As always, H-Diplo relies heavily on the expertise of George Fujii (Independent Scholar), H-Diplo’s Web and Production Editor, who is responsible not only for H-Diplo’s web design but also for the formatting of all our publications. Our list editors, Christopher Ball (Independent Scholar), Amanda Kempa (Historian, U.S. Office of the Secretary of Defense), and Seth Offenbach (Bronx Community College, City University of New York) work very hard to ensure the daily smooth functioning of the list. H-Diplo’s _Journal Watch_ Editors, Erin Black (University of Toronto) and Lubna Qureshi (Södertörn University College, Sweden), provide an invaluable service to the academic community by ensuring that our quarterly _JW_ reports include all periodicals that are germane to the fields of diplomatic history and international relations. Seth Offenbach has assumed duties as H-Diplo’s lead H-Net Book Review Editor. His reviews are posted on the weekend. James McAllister (Williams College) is the Managing Editor for the expanding H-Diplo/ISSF project. Its founding directors are Robert Jervis (Columbia University), Sean Lynn-Jones, (Harvard University), T.V. Paul (McGill University), and William C. Wohlforth (Dartmouth). The guiding force behind H-Diplo/ISSF is its Executive Editor, Professor Jervis, who has long been a wise voice on H-Diplo and who acts as a vital intellectual bridge between the worlds of history and international relations. H-Diplo also very much relies upon its large and distinguished Editorial Board for its sound council and guidance of the list. Its members are as follows: President of the H-Diplo Editorial Board: Elizabeth Cobbs Hoffman, Dwight Stanford Professor of US Foreign Relations, San Diego State University Thomas Blanton, Director of the National Security Archive, The George Washington University Kathleen Burk, Professor of Modern and Contemporary History, University College London (UCL) Malcolm Byrne, Deputy Director and Director of Research, the National Security Archive, The George Washington University Hope M. Harrison, Associate Professor of History and International Affairs, Elliott School of International Affairs, The George Washington University James Hershberg, Associate Professor of History and International Affairs, The George Washington University William Keylor, Professor of History and International Relations and Director of the International History Institute at Boston University Fredrik Logevall, Professor of History, Cornell University Thomas Maddux, Professor of History, California State University, Northridge Sally Marks, Independent Historian Chester Pach, Associate Professor of History, Ohio University Priscilla M. Roberts, Lecturer and Assistant Professor, University of Hong Kong David Schoenbaum, Professor of History Emeritus, University of Iowa Yone Sugita, Associate Professor of American history, Osaka University Janice Terry, Professor of History Emerita, Eastern Michigan University Gerhard L. Weinberg, Professor of History Emeritus, University of North Carolina Odd Arne Westad, Professor of International History, the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and Co-Director of the LSE Cold War Studies Centre Thomas Zeiler, Professor of History, University of Colorado at Boulder and Executive Editor of Diplomatic History, the journal of the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations (SHAFR) We would also like to thank Tom Blanton, Director of the National Security Archive, and Malcolm Byrne, Deputy Director and Director of Research of the National Security Archive. They have supported H-Diplo with many years of service on the H-Diplo Editorial Board, and initiated and have directed the National Security Archive’s support for the H-Diplo Managing Editor’s position for over a decade. Most importantly, H-Diplo thanks its vast global community of scholars, who agree to write reviews for us, subscribe to the list, and participate in its discussions. The editors very much appreciate the support of this community, as well as of the larger circle of diplomats, journalists, civil servants and other professionals who fill its subscriber base. The H-Diplo editors anticipate another stellar year. With warm regards, Diane Labrosse, H-Diplo Managing Editor --
