I am a New York-based author and for the past five years, I have been writing prolifically about the rising issue of anti-Semitism throughout the world. I have criss-crossed Ukraine over the course of four trips, interviewing prominent members of the Jewish community and experts alike. I have studied Russian language in both New York and St. Petersburg, where I lived in 2017.
To date, I have written some eighty articles about Ukraine, and I have also published a booklet, Ukraine's Revolutionary Ghosts, which features a distillation and synthesis of much of my earlier writing on this subject, as well as accompanying images. My essays on these issues have appeared in such venues as the Washington, D.C.-based Kennan Institute (a division of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars), al-Jazeera, Huffington Post and "New Eastern Europe."
Before I started addressing East-West tensions, I was more oriented toward North-South dynamics, and specifically Latin America. In 2002, I received my doctorate in Latin American history from Oxford University. Later, I 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.
In addition, I am the author of No Rain in the Amazon: How South America's Climate Change Affects the Entire Planet, and I'm a prolific writer on the topics of environment and climate change. I have spoken about such wide-ranging topics on the likes of CNN, the BBC and National Public Radio to name just a few, and I even put in a guest appearance on the Daily Show.
I have meanwhile given much thought to the concept of non-violent social and political change. To see my companion site, which features my own interviews with experts and activists on these matters, as well as some of my own articles, click here.
I am also a satiric novelist and the author of Post Academic Stress Disorder. Currently, I am writing another novel of historic fiction entitled Unlikely Gaucho of the Pampas. In addition, I am a photographer and photojournalist. To follow on Facebook, click here. To follow on Twitter @nikolaskozloff, click here.
