 Tom Nichols Biography

Tom Nichols is a professor at the Naval War College with deep expertise on Russia and the role that warfare plays in international affairs. With his new book, however, he looks at expertise itself. In "The Death of Expertise: The Campaign Against Established Knowledge and Why It Matters," he argues that too many of people have embraced the idea that experts should have no more standing in government or society than they themselves do. He makes the case that experts do matter and that this kind of false egalitarianism is dangerous. "The Death of Expertise" has been published in eleven foreign editions of the book: Chinese (complex and simple), Korean, Indonesian, Japanese, Russian, Ukrainian, Finnish, Portuguese, Italian, and Romanian.

Prior to working at the Naval War College, Nichols taught international relations as well as Soviet and Russian Affairs at Dartmouth College and Georgetown University. He was also a fellow in the International Security Program at the Harvard Kennedy School. Nichols was the Chairman of National Security Affairs at the U.S. Naval War College where he also held the Forrest Sherman Chair of Public Diplomacy. Nichols is a former Secretary of the Navy Fellow and also a fellow in the International Security Program and the Project on Managing the Atom at the Harvard Kennedy School.

Nichols has a bachelor's degree from Boston University; a master's from Columbia University; and a doctorate from Georgetown University. He also holds a certificate from the Harriman Institute of Columbia University.
