The DPhil thesis I completed in 2012 examined cross-border protest against nuclear energy in France and West Germany during the 1970s. Drawing on oral history interviews with more than 60 former activists as well as written sources from three dozen archives, it showed how individuals at the grassroots built up a movement that transcended national, political, cultural, and social boundaries, changing the nature of protest in the process.
The book based on this research, Better Active than Radioactive! Anti-Nuclear Protest in 1970s France and West Germany, was published with Oxford University Press in 2016.
