David Andelman

Editor of World Policy Journal and Columnist at USA Today

As the Editor of The World Policy Journal, David Andelman publishes influential commentary on international relations that make a virtue of non partisan discourse. It’s just the latest in a series of prestigious posts—he was also Executive Editor at Forbes—that mark him as one of the most experienced and insightful speakers on global economics, business, and politics.

“It is the power and fascination of David Andelman’s new book, A Shattered Peace, that he shows us—with the clarity of a first-rate reporter and the drama and detail at the command of a first-rate novelist—that we are all still enmeshed in the loose ends of the Treaty of Versailles.” – Richard Snow, Editor in Chief, American Heritage
