[haw-info] recent on-line articles of interest

To members and friends of Historians Against the War,

 

On behalf of the HAW Steering Committee, we plan to send a message every two weeks with links to on-line articles that provide historical background on HAW-relevant topics.  Suggestions for inclusion are welcome: they can be sent to jimobrien48@gmail.com.  Members of the working group for this project are listed below.

 

Sincerely,

Matt Bokovoy

Carolyn (Rusti) Eisenberg

Jim O'Brien

Maia Ramnath
