This three-time Pulitzer Prize-winner is one of the world’s preeminent commentators on international affairs. When events in this nation and abroad seem too menacing to comprehend, the American public looks to him for the straight talk and reliable information we need. He has traveled the globe reporting on the Middle East conflict, the end of the cold war, U.S. domestic politics and foreign policy, international economics, and the impact of the worldwide terrorist threat.

His foreign affairs column, which appears twice a week in the New York Times, is syndicated to seven hundred newspapers worldwide. His best selling books include: Longitudes and Attitudes: Exploring the World After September 11, and The World is Flat.
