The Morgan prize citation: “Focusing on the international politics of humanitarian intervention in the Ottoman Empire, Sharing the Burden covers British and American attempts to help the Armenians from the late nineteenth century through the first two decades of the twentieth. Laderman devotes considerable attention to the presidencies of Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. He provides new insights into the promise and failure of the League of Nations and its mandate system to create a new world order after World War I. He includes missionaries and merchants as well as political leaders in the story. In sum, this is an important book about the politics and foreign relations of the United States during the Gilded Age and Progressive Era.”

Charlie Laderman is a Lecturer in International History in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London.

 

OAH and AHA ACTIVITIES

The Society for Historians of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era (SHGAPE) co-sponsors and sponsors panels at both the annual meeting of the American Historical Association and the annual meeting of the Organization of American Historians. SHGAPE sponsorship can direct traffic to your panel. In addition, for the OAH, SHGAPE can sponsor panels that have not been accepted by the selection committee. This can provide GAPE scholars another avenue to present at the OAH.

In addition, SHGAPE organizes workshops, roundtables, lightning rounds, and chat room sessions at the OAH.
