SHAFR Virtual Exhibit

Welcome to the UNC Press Virtual Exhibit for the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations.



Since we can’t be together at the conference, we’re bringing our book exhibit to you.

From virtually anywhere, you can browse our list of new and recent titles, chat with our editor Debbie Gershenowitz, learn about our new books in our New Cold War History Series, and more.



Debbie Gershenowitz interviews Dr. Alan McPherson on his new book, “Ghosts of Sheridan Circle: How a Washington Assassination Brought Pinochet’s Terror State to Justice.”

All of our books (in fact, our entire site) are available now at our 40 percent SHAFR conference discount. Plus if your order totals $75, domestic U.S. shipping is FREE! Just use promo code 01DAH40 at checkout.

Click here for our full list of books in Diplomatic History/International Affairs.

Follow the links at the left for information on submitting a book proposal, ordering desk or examination copies (even free digital exam copies), classroom permissions, disability resources, and more. We’ve even created a handy FAQ document, with answers to the most-asked questions we get at exhibit booths.

Click on any book below to learn more. And, using our View Inside feature, you can leaf through the pages for a preview of each new book, just as if you were standing at our booth. Check it out on each book page.
