Nikolas Kozloff is a New York-based author and a contributor to such venues as al-Jazeera, Huffington Post and Le Monde Diplomatique. Kozloff has provided political analysis for CNN, PBS' Charlie Rose show, the BBC and National Public Radio, and even put in a guest appearance on the Daily Show.
For the past three years, he has been writing prolifically about the deterioration in East-West relations, Vladimir Putin and political crisis in Ukraine. He has conducted two research trips to Kyiv and Odessa, in 2014 and 2016, respectively. Few have written more about Ukraine's post-Maidan political milieu than Kozloff, with fifty one articles and counting. Last year, he published a booklet, Ukraine's Revolutionary Ghosts, which features a distillation and synthesis of much of his writing on this subject, as well as accompanying images.
Before Kozloff started addressing East-West tensions, he was more oriented toward North-South dynamics, and specifically Latin America. In 2002, he received his doctorate in Latin American history from Oxford University. Later, he went on to write Hugo Chávez: Oil, Politics and the Challenge to the U.S., and Revolution! South America and the Rise of the New Left. Over the years, he has written hundreds of articles about U.S. foreign policy in Latin America, populism, and the political left throughout the wider region. His extensive articles on WikiLeaks and Edward Snowden provide a valuable historical and political archive elucidating the nature of wider hemispheric politics.
In addition, Kozloff is the author of No Rain in the Amazon: How South America's Climate Change Affects the Entire Planet, and a prolific writer on the topics of environment and climate change.
A critic of both the right and the doctrinaire left, Kozloff's politics may best be described as "anti-authoritarian" in spirit. Indeed, he has given much thought to the concept of non-violent social and political change.

Kozloff is also a satiric novelist and the author of Post Academic Stress Disorder. In addition, he is a photographer and photojournalist. To follow on Facebook, click here. To follow on Twitter @nikolaskozloff, click here.
