Robin Wright

Robin Wright has reported from more than 130 countries on six continents for The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, The Sunday Times of London, CBS News and The Christian Science Monitor. She has also written for The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, The New York Times, The Times (London), The Guardian (London), The International Herald Tribune and many others.

Her foreign tours include five years in the Middle East, two years in Europe, seven years in Africa, and several years as a roving correspondent in those areas as well as Latin America and Asia. She has covered a dozen wars and several revolutions. She is now diplomatic correspondent for The Washington Post.

In 2003, she was awarded the United Nations correspondents' Gold Medal for coverage of international affairs. In 2001, she won the Weintal Prize for "the most distinguished diplomatic reporting." Among several other awards, Ms. Wright won the 1989 National Magazine Award for her reportage from Iran in The New Yorker and the Overseas Press Club Award for "best reporting in any medium requiring exceptional courage and initiative" for coverage of African wars. She is also the recipient of a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation grant.

Ms. Wright has interviewed a wide range of foreign leaders, from South Africa's Nelson Mandela and Pope John Paul II to Libya's Moammar Qaddafi and Jordan's King Hussein. She has traveled over the past three decades with U.S. officials from six administrations, ranging from President Carter to President Bush, and from Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to Secretary of State Colin Powell.

Besides a long career in journalism, Ms. Wright has been a fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Yale University, Duke University, Stanford University, the University of California at Santa Barbara and the University of Southern California. She also lectures extensively around the United States, in Europe and Asia.

Among her books, "The Last Great Revolution: Turmoil and Transformation in Iran" was selected as one of the 25 most memorable books of the year 2000. Her earlier book "Sacred Rage: The Wrath of Militant Islam" was issued in November 2001 with updated chapters from her travels in Afghanistan and running through the Sept. 11 attacks. She is also the author of "Flashpoints: Promise and Peril in a New World," co-authored with Doyle McManus, which has been translated into six languages, and "In the Name of God: The Khomeini Decade."
