I am a New York-based journalist who has been to Ukraine four times and written more than 80 articles about the country, as well as East-West relations more generally. My 2016 book, Ukraine's Revolutionary Ghosts, highlights some of this reportage (now updated in light of Putin's invasion of Ukraine, with an additional forward).
I am the author of No Rain in the Amazon: How South America's Climate Change Affects the Entire Planet, and I have written more than sixty articles about the environment and climate change. In addition to earning a doctorate in Latin American history from Oxford University, I am the author of two books on the wider region, Hugo Chávez: Oil, Politics and the Challenge to the U.S., and Revolution! South America and the Rise of the New Left. I have spoken about many of these wide-ranging topics on the likes of CNN, the BBC and National Public Radio, to name just a few.
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'm also the author of a satiric novel, Post Academic Stress Disorder, as well as more short-form fiction. To see my photographs and many accompanying articles, click here.
