Bio/Research

Beth A. Fischer specializes in political psychology, international security, and American foreign policy. She is the author of The Reagan Reversal: Foreign Policy and the End of the Cold War (University of Missouri Press, 1997), and has written extensively on the ending of the Cold War. In addition, she has published articles about psychology and foreign policy decision making, intelligence analysis, changing conceptions of security, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the international campaign to ban landmines. Her current interests focus on neuroscience and our evolving understanding of decision making. In 2002 Professor Fischer was awarded a Nobel Fellowship for her work on conflict management and the ending of the Cold War. She is currently writing a book entitled Triumph?: The Reagan Legacy and American Foreign Policy Today. This volume evaluates the triumphalist narrative in American foreign policy and considers the way in which it has shaped contemporary relations between Washington and the rest of the world. During 2000-2003, Professor Fischer was co-editor, with Margaret MacMillan, of International Journal, Canada's leading journal on international affairs. She has taught extensively on conflict and conflict management, American politics, and decision making.
