Steven James Brady Faculty Member

Originally from Chicago, I hold a BA in Philosophy and Social Sciences from Roosevelt University, from which I graduated first in the class of 1989. After a year as a law clerk in Chicago, I entered the PhD program in History at the University of Notre Dame. I graduated in 1998, and began teaching at Notre Dame, a position in which I continued until moving to George Washington. In addition, I served as an academic advisor at Notre Dame for seventeen years. My publications have focused on United States foreign relations. These include the monograph "Eisenhower and Adenauer: Alliance Maintenance under Pressure, 1953-1960," which was published in 2009 by Lexington in the Harvard Cold War Studies Book Series. My recently-published book is "Chained to History: Slavery and US Foreign Relations to 1865" (Published January, 2022). My current book project is "Less Than Victory: American Catholics and the Vietnam War." I have completed the Introduction and drafts of four of eight proposed chapters. I have granted right of first refusal to Cambridge University Press for inclusion in their new series "The Military, War, and Society in Modern American History," edited by Beth Bailey and Andrew Preston. I teach US diplomatic and political history, as well as military history, primarily of the twentieth century world. In addition, I serve as undergraduate advisor in the Department of History.
