Johns Hopkins foreign policy specialist and bestselling author Michael Mandelbaum is known for his ability to explain the meaning and consequences of complicated global developments and trends. The New York Times called him "one of the country's leading public intellectuals," and Foreign Policy magazine named him one of the Top 100 Global Thinkers.
Co-written with Thomas Friedman, Mandelbaum's That Used to Be Us: How America Fell Behind in the World It Invented and How We Can Come Back, debuted at #2 on The New York Times bestsellers list. Library Journal called it “a book of exceptional importance” that “should be read by policymakers and every American concerned about our country's future.”
Mandelbaum is the author or co-author of 16 books, including The Case for Goliath, Democracy’s Good Name, The Meaning of Sports, and The Frugal Superpower, which The Financial Times named one of the best non-fiction books of 2010. His classic, The Ideas That Conquered the World, has been translated into seven languages, including Chinese and Arabic. Henry Kissinger praised it as “illuminating and thought-provoking.”
His latest book, 2016's Mission Failure: America and the World in the Post-Cold War Era, was given a starred review by Kirkus. Thomas Friedman said, "A must-read...it's going to be one of the most talked about foreign policy books of the year." In 2014, Simon & Schuster published The Road to Global Prosperity, which looks at the future of the global economy and includes sections on financial stability, international security, the politics of trade, and emerging markets.
The Christian A. Herter Professor Emeritus of American Foreign Policy at The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, Mandelbaum has taught at Columbia University, Harvard, and The United States Naval Academy. He was educated at Yale, Cambridge, and Harvard.
A former Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, Mandelbaum serves on the board of advisors of The Washington Institute for Near East Policy. The World Affairs Councils of America named him one of the most influential people in American foreign policy. He has been a guest on Charlie Rose, Face The Nation, and The Daily Show.
Hurricane of Change: The Impact of Globalization 3.0 and Technological Disruption — AND HOW WE CAN ADAPT
The most significant forces driving change in the world today – the ongoing revolution in information technology, including artificial intelligence, and the expanding flow of products, money, and people across borders – are destroying jobs, upending entire industries, and transforming the politics of the United States and Europe.
In this speech Michael Mandelbaum, author of the highly praised study of the political backlash against globalization, The Road to Global Prosperity, explores the future of these two disruptive forces, assesses their likely effects on the economies and the politics of the industrial democracies, and discusses the ways that individuals, firms, and countries can adapt to this hurricane of change to sustain prosperity and preserve democracy.
Geopolitics and Global Hot Spots
An analysis of geopolitical developments, risks, and trends around the world. What matters now and what will affect companies, countries, and markets in the years ahead? What are the chances of major wars and serious economic breakdowns?
Michael Mandelbaum discusses the most volatile issues, including Russia’s aggressive policies, China’s ambitions in the East and South China Seas, Iran’s drive for dominance amid the ongoing upheavals in the Middle East, the dangers posed by “rogue” countries such as North Korea, international terrorism, and the future of the euro and the European Union. He also assesses the changing role of the United States in a world of shifting alliances, increasingly dispersed power and influence, and growing risks.

The Future of Democracy
Democracy is the most widespread political system in the world, but in the last decade, new and formidable challenges to it have arisen. Michael Mandelbaum, the author of Democracy’s Good Name: The Rise and the Risks of the World’s Most Popular Form of Government, explains how and why democracy took hold in so many countries in the last three decades of the 20th century. In this speech, Mandelbaum discusses the prospects for it in the most important non-democracies — China and Russia — as well as the major challenges it faces where it has long been established, especially in the United States.
Mission Failure: America and the World in the Post-Cold War Era
The quarter century between the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Russian invasion of Ukraine was a unique period in American foreign policy. Free from major foreign threats, the United States concentrated on bringing stability, democracy, and prosperity to a wide variety of countries, from China and Russia to Afghanistan and Iraq. In this speech, Michael Mandelbaum explains why the American efforts failed everywhere, how this unique period ended, and what foreign policy challenges America faces in its wake.
