Edward Miller

Academic Appointments

Associate Professor of History

Edward Miller is a historian of American Foreign Relations and modern Vietnam, with particular expertise in the Vietnam War. His scholarship explores the international and transnational dimensions of the war, and is based on research in archives in Vietnam, Europe, and the United States.   Professor Miller is interested in the ways in which political and military conflicts in Vietnam and the rest of Southeast Asia after 1945 were also conflicts over ideas—especially ideas about development, nation building, and sovereignty. These themes are examined in his first book, entitled Misalliance: Ngo Dinh Diem, the United States, and the Fate of South Vietnam (Harvard University Press, 2013).
