Snyder traces the influence of human rights activists and advances a new interpretation of U.S. foreign policy in the “long 1960s.” By highlighting the importance of non-state and lower-level actors, Snyder shows how this activism established the networks and tactics critical to the institutionalization of human rights. A major work of international and transnational history, "From Selma to Moscow" reshapes understanding of the role of human rights activism in transforming U.S. foreign policy in the 1960s and 1970s, and highlights timely lessons for those seeking to promote a policy agenda resisted by the White House. Snyder is a historian of U.S. foreign relations and an associate professor at American University’s School of International Service. She also is the author of the award-winning "Human Rights Activism and the End of the Cold War: A Transnational History of the Helsinki Network" (2011).
