In this edition of Wilson Center NOW we speak with Kennan Institute Title VIII Research Scholar Jonathan Hunt. Hunt discusses his upcoming book Atomic Condominium, which examines the surprising level of cooperation on nuclear non-proliferation between the United States and Soviet Union during the Cold War. He also discusses the current approach to the nuclear question and its implications for broader US-Russia relations.


Jonathan Hunt studies the history of the Cold War and international relations since 1945. Originally from Austin, Texas, Hunt earned his BA and PhD at the University of Texas at Austin. Before working at Southampton, he served as a fellow at Stanford University and RAND Corporation, and a visiting lecturer at Emory University. He has also been a visiting scholar at the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Harvard University and an associate visiting research fellow at the Rothermere American Institute at the University of Oxford.
