[haw-info] HAW Notes

1.  The basic Historians Against the War statement, overwhelmingly approved in a ratification vote open to everyone on the "HAW-Info" e-mail list earlier this month, is posted on the HAW web site at http://www.historiansagainstwar.org/statement.html.  Everyone who is in substantial agreement with the statement is invited to fill out a form at the bottom of the web page and become formally a member of HAW.


2.  The HAW-sponsored panel discussion at this year's AHA convention, on "The Bush-Cheney Legacy," is now available from Radio Free Maine in various formats (DVD and VHS video, dual audio CD and audiotape cassette).  For ordering information contact Roger Leisner, rleisnerrfm@yahoo.com or (207) 242-0643 (cell phone).  The five featured speakers were Alice Kessler-Harris, David Montgomery, Vijay Prashad, Ellen Schrecker, and Barbara Weinstein.  HAW is also preparing edited versions of the talks in printed form, available later this spring.   

3.  Larry Wittner, longtime activist in HAW's collaborating organization the Peace History Society, has prepared an abbreviated version (for college classes and general readers, of his scholarly Struggle Against the Bomb trilogy.  Entitled Confronting the Bomb: A Short History of the World Nuclear Disarmament Movement, it will be available in paperback from Stanford University Press (http://www.sup.org/book.cgi?id=9646) and from bookstores as of mid-June.
