We’re pleased to announce that James Goldgeier, Professor of Political Science and International Affairs at GW, has been captured and will be held in captivity here in the cage until he escapes in a few weeks.
After stints on the faculty at Cornell and as a visiting research fellow at Stanford, Jim joined the GW faculty in 1994. Since then, we’ve seen too little of him, but in a good way, as he has served as a Council on Foreign Relations International Affairs Fellow at the State Department and on the National Security Council staff, as a Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, as the Henry Kissinger scholar in foreign policy and international relations at the Library of Congress, and as a Public Policy Scholar at the Wilson Center; he is now a Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations.
Jim is the author or co-author of several books — most notably, perhaps, Not Whether But When: The U.S. Decision to Enlarge NATO, and the hot-off-the-presses America Between the Wars: From 11/9 to 9/11 (with Derek Chollet).
During his period of captivity, Jim will be weighing on on topics related to American foreign policy, international security, transatlantic relations, or whatever else captures his fancy. (We’re hoping that he’ll ignore his life-long fixation on the Baltimore Orioles baseball, a topic far too dismal to be well-suited for this cheery blog.)
