Robert D. Kaplan

Robert D. Kaplan's career started at a small U.S. newspaper, but he soon grew frustrated with the work and began writing on his own, as an overseas stringer and freelancer. Eight years later his byline finally appeared in a major national magazine, and soon after he began writing regularly for The Atlantic Monthly.

Now a correspondent for The Atlantic, Kaplan has reported on assignment for the magazine from Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Latin America, and the United States. He has been prolific in recent years writing many books which grew out of Atlantic articles.

Kaplan has been writing as a foreign correspondent for more than twenty years, and his two-decades' worth of traveling and reporting experience-much of which he has accumulated in the world's most difficult and dangerous places- inform even his briefest contributions. His writing always combines on-the-ground reporting, rich academic context, a deep regard for the past, and an abiding concern for the future.
