I’m a Berlin-based writer who has been working in Germany and across Central and Eastern Europe since 1989. My work has appeared in the New York Times, Newsweek, The Nation, Foreign Policy, Spiegel International, and elsewhere. I’m Europe Correspondent for the Chronicle of Higher Education and have authored several books on European politics.
I was an editor at the journal Internationale Politik at the German Council on Foreign Relations for five years and member of the postwar civilian administrations in the Balkans in the 1990s.
My new book Berlin Calling: A Story of Anarchy, Loud Music, The Wall and the Birth of the New Berlin is forthcoming June 2017 (The New Press).
