Meet Niall Ferguson

Financial crises are nothing new. Called “the most talented British historian of his generation,” Niall Ferguson puts the latest meltdown into perspective.

Controversial, expansive and eloquent, Harvard's Niall Ferguson is one of the world's leading historians on the global economy. The ambitious themes he explores in his work have urgent relevance to the present as well as the past: the costs and benefits of economic globalization; the interface between finance and politics; the lessons to be learned from the British experience of empire; and most recently, the strengths and limitation of American global power. Ferguson is author of such internationally-acclaimed works as The Pity of War, The Cash Nexus: Money and Power in the Modern World, Empire: The Rise and Demise of the British World Order and the Lessons for Global Power, The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World and High Financier: The Lives and Time of Siegmund Warburg. In his book, Civilization: The West and the Rest, Ferguson argues that the days of Western predominance are numbered—not because of clashes with rival civilizations, but simply because the Rest have now downloaded the six killer apps we once monopolized—while the West has literally lost faith in itself. Based on unprecedented access to private documents and hundreds of archives, Ferguson sheds new light on Henry Kissinger in his most recent book, Kissinger: 1923-1968: The Idealist (September, 2015).
