Britain confronts the Stalin revolution: Anglo-Soviet relations and the Metro-Vickers crisis, by Gordon W. Morrell

Gordon Morrell, currently departmental chair, studies international history of the 20th century, a formerly neglected field now revealed in a more exciting light by recent developments. Dr. Morrell's first monograph, Britain Confronts the Stalin Revolution, investigates a case history from the 1930s; one which shows the difficulties of cooperation between a revolutionary regime and the outside world.

Britain Confronts the Stalin Revolution is published by Wilfrid Laurier University Press; the Amazon.com page includes a longer summary.

Another award for Dr. Hilary Earl, teacher/scholar

Not long ago it was announced that Hilary Earl had received this year's Chancellor's Award for Teaching Excellence. Now we hear that she has also been recognized for her research on the Holocaust and genocide in general with the Nipissing University Research Achievement Award.

NU aspires, with a great deal of success, to have a faculty of teacher/scholars. Ask Hilary Earl's students why this is a worthwhile goal.

Your colleagues are proud of you, too, Hilary!
