Andrew J. Bacevich


Andrew Bacevich has said, “War, we must always remind ourselves, is the continuation of politics by other means. Understanding any war requires first understanding that war’s political basis. What brings the parties into conflict? What are they fighting for?” Bacevich’s books include The Limits of Power: The End of American Exceptionalism and The New American Militarism:  How Americans Are Seduced by War which received the inaugural Lannan Literary Award for An Especially Notable Book in 2005.

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 publications. Bacevich was a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy and received his PhD in American Diplomatic History from Princeton University. He taught at West Point and Johns Hopkins University, and since 1998 taught history and international relations at Boston University, a position he recently retired from. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. His most recent work is Breach of Trust: How Americans Failed Their Soldiers and Their Country, which received the 2014 American Book Award.
