Allow me to introduce Professor Robert J. Lieber, who will be a Guest Contributor at Ricochet this week. Dr. Lieber is Professor of Government and International Affairs at Georgetown University, where he specializes in American foreign policy and U.S. relations with the Middle East and Europe. He has authored or edited sixteen books on international relations, U.S. foreign policy, and energy security. His most recent title, Power and Willpower in The American Future: Why the US is Not Destined to Decline, was released by Cambridge University Press earlier this year to widespread acclaim.
Professor Lieber has been a foreign policy adviser in several presidential campaigns and a consultant to the State Department and for National Intelligence Estimates. His byline has appeared in a wide variety of major publications, including the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Christian Science Monitor, and Commentary. There's more to Professor Lieber than just his foreign policy bona fides, however: his resume also boasts a walk-on part in the Alfred Hitchcock film classic "North By Northwest."
Please join us in welcoming Professor Lieber to Ricochet.
