Logevall wins 2013 Pulitzer Prize

Historian Fredrik Logevall, the John S. Knight Professor of International Studies and director of the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, was awarded the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for his acclaimed book, 'Embers of War: The Fall of an Empire and the Making of America's Vietnam.'

The Pulitzer citation calls the book, which begins in 1919 and ends in 1959, 'a balanced, deeply researched history of how, as French colonial rule faltered, a succession of American leaders moved step by step down a road toward full-blown war.'
