Historian | Author | Speaker

I began writing about foreign relations in the aftermath of September 11th and the Global War on Terrorism. My interests include the presidency, international relations, American culture, and how the present connects with the past.

I regularly write for newspapers and magazines. I edit the New Perspectives on the American Presidency book series, appear  in several documentaries, podcasts, and offer talks on a range of subjects.

I am a native of New Jersey, Yankees fan, and cocktail lover easily tempted with a whiskey.
