Andrew Bacevich

Andrew Bacevich is professor of international relations at Boston University.

A few days ago I asked him what he was reading. His reply:
A major publication has asked me to review The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy by Mearsheimer and Walt. So I am reading that book with great care -- writing a review that is balanced as well as seen to be balanced will be a challenge.
Read more about The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy at the publisher's website. (Or watch John Mearsheimer's interview with Stephen Colbert.)

A graduate of the U. S. Military Academy, Andrew Bacevich received his Ph. D. in American Diplomatic History from Princeton University. Before joining the faculty of Boston University in 1998, he taught at West Point and at Johns Hopkins University. He is the editor, most recently, of The Long War: A New History of US National Security Policy since World War II (2007), and the author of New American Militarism: How Americans Are Seduced by War (2005).

Bacevich's previous books include American Empire: The Realities and Consequences of U. S. Diplomacy (2002) and The Imperial Tense: Problems and Prospects of American Empire (2003). His essays and reviews have appeared in a wide variety of scholarly and general interest publications including The Wilson Quarterly, The National Interest, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, The Nation, The American Conservative, and The New Republic . His op-eds have appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, and USA Today, among other newspapers.
