Reader in International History, Dr James Ellison featured on Australian radio this weekend. Talking on ABC's Nightlife programme, James joined host Indira Naidoo to discuss the Brussels Treaty of 1948, NATO, the Cold War and the current crisis in Ukraine. The discussion was part of the 'This Week in History' topic covered on the show. The full episode can be listened to and downloaded from the ABC website.
James' appearance on Nightlife follows the piece he wrote for History Extra earlier in the month. Writing on NATO, Russia, and the history of the post-WW2 tensions, James reflected how the formation of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) is crucial to understanding the unfolding conflict in Ukraine.
