 Tom Reiss Biography

Tom Reiss is the author of the Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times bestseller "The Black Count." The book tells a story of leadership, humanity and civil rights with General Thomas-Alexandre Dumas as the protagonist. He is the father of the better-known Alexandre Dumas who wrote such legendary books as The Three Musketeers and the Count of Monte Cristo.

Beyond the universal theme of leadership, Reiss sheds startling new light on a forgotten age of emancipation: a single decade when the French Revolution ended slavery, created integrated schools and government, and allowed a black man to lead more than 50,000 white officers and soldiers into battle. Alex Dumas’s career as a black leader in a white society remained unequaled until our own time, when leaders like Colin Powell and Barack Obama followed in his footsteps.

A relentless researcher, Tom Reiss gives voices to figures otherwise forgotten and unearths stories that history has relegated to the “past”, but whose themes are critical for our understanding of today. Sharing these discoveries with audiences across the academic and corporate world, Reiss speaks with great passion and expertise about leadership, civil rights and the investigative adventure behind researching historical events and figures.

"The Black Count" was named to “Top 10 Nonfiction Books of the Year” by TIME magazine and as one of The New York Times’ “100 Best Books of 2012”. Reiss has written for The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and The New Yorker. His second book, The Orientalist was a New York Times bestseller and sold to eighteen countries.
