Chairman, Cambridge Energy Research Associates, and Author
Dr. Daniel Yergin, Chairman of Cambridge Energy Research Associates, is a highly respected authority on international politics and economics and on energy. He is both a Pulitzer Prize winner and recipient of the 1997 United States Energy Award for "lifelong achievements in energy and the promotion of international understanding." His new book, The Commanding Heights: The Battle Between Government and the Marketplace That Is Remaking the Modern World, coauthored with Dr. Joseph A. Stanislaw, is receiving wide attention for its analysis and narrative of how the "world is changing its mind." The Wall Street Journal wrote: "No one could ask for a better account of the world's political and economic destiny since World War II." The New York Times Sunday Book Review said that The Commanding Heights "manages a most impressive feat: to tell a real-world story in multiple dimensions and make it read like a novel." And The Los Angeles Times: a book "whose readability is irresistible." And Foreign Affairs: "No other book describes so thoroughly the scope of the world's economic transformation."
Dr. Yergin received the 1992 Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction for his work The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money and Power, which became a #1 national best seller and was made into an eight-hour PBS/BBC series seen by 20 million people in the United States. The book has been translated into 12 languages. His book, Russia 2010 and What It Means for the World, coauthored with Thane Gustafson, depicted the turmoil in Russia's move to a market economy.
Dr. Yergin is a member of the Board of the United States Energy Association and a member of the National Petroleum Council. He is also a member of the US Secretary of Energy's Advisory Board and chaired the US Department of Energy's Task Force on Strategic Energy Research and Development.
Dr. Yergin received his BA from Yale University and his PhD from Cambridge University. He holds honorary degrees from the University of Houston and the University of Missouri.
