I am pleased to announce that Christopher Preble of the Cato Institute will be guest blogging on Pileus next week (starting Monday, June 7th). Although I’m biased since he’s a friend of mine, I think it is accurate to say that Chris is a leading light in the Washington foreign policy community. He’s frequently right when most of that community is so very wrong.
Here is his impressive bio:
Christopher A. Preble is the director of foreign policy studies at the Cato Institute. His book, The Power Problem: How American Military Dominance Makes Us Less Safe, Less Prosperous and Less Free, published by Cornell University Press, documents the enormous costs of America’s military power, and proposes a new grand strategy to advance U.S. national security. He is also the author of Exiting Iraq: How the U.S. Must End the Occupation and Renew the War against Al Qaeda and John F. Kennedy and the Missile Gap. In addition to his books, Preble has published over 100 articles in major publications including USA Today, the Financial Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Philadelphia Inquirer, Reason, the National Interest, the Foreign Service Journal, and the Harvard International Review. He has also appeared on many television and radio news networks including CNN, MSNBC, Fox News Channel, NPR, and the BBC. Before joining Cato in February 2003, he taught history at St. Cloud State University and Temple University. Preble was a commissioned officer in the U.S. Navy and is a veteran of the Gulf War, having served onboard USS Ticonderoga (CG-47) from 1990 to 1993. Preble holds a Ph.D. in history from Temple University.
