With over 25 years covering and writing about the political scene in Washington, Charles Krauthammer offers unique insight and analysis into the goings on inside the Beltway and on the issues and topics foremost in the minds of most Americans. Audiences will enjoy what viewers of “Inside Washington” and FOX News have long enjoyed: seeing his sharp mind turned loose on the political issues of the day.
With over 25 years experience commenting on foreign policy, Charles Krauthammer offers a unique and highly influential perspective. He goes against the grain, not afraid to challenge conventional wisdom (for a decade he was almost alone in calling the Oslo peace agreements a fraud that would inevitably lead to war, and was proved right). Whether writing about 9/11, the Middle East, the democratic revolutions sweeping the world today, or the indispensable role of American power, Dr. Krauthammer’s views have been attracting the attention of presidents and senior policy makers for years. Krauthammer shares the insights borne of his experience as a trusted voice on international affairs.
As a medical doctor and board-certified psychiatrist (though a member of the President’s Council on Bioethics, he speaks and writes unofficially and entirely independently), Dr. Krauthammer is uniquely situated to tackle the perils and promise of the new biotechnology, discuss end-of-life questions and challenge conventional wisdom on America's health-care. From policy to research, audiences are treated to a lively discussion of someone who understands the medical and ethical ramifications of the latest news from the world of medicine.
One of the most influential opinion-makers in the country, Charles Krauthammer challenges conventional wisdom with practically every word he writes.
No matter what the issue—from the economy, bioethics, the Middle East or today’s political headlines—you can depend on Charles Krauthammer’s insightful commentary to clear the debris left by shoddy thinking with an entirely new viewpoint. Unabashedly conservative, Krauthammer does more than comment on the issues and policies of the day—he helps shape discussion about them. Intellectually fearless, once Krauthammer enters the discussion it takes on a new shape. Audiences are treated to a mind whose influence on national and world events is immeasurable. Krauthammer earned an MD from Harvard Medical School, and even practiced medicine before becoming a speechwriter for Vice President Walter Mondale, and later joined The New Republic as a writer and editor. He writes a nationally syndicated column for The Washington Post and contributes to several other publications, including The Weekly Standard and The New Republic. Later this year, Crown Forum will be publishing a collection of Dr. Krauthammer's writings, Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics (October 2013).
