Professor English came to USC in 2001 from Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies. He earned his BA in History and Slavic Studies at UC Berkeley, and an MPA from the Woodrow WIlson School of Princeton University. This was followed by three years in the US Department of Defense, and then two more years with the Committee for National Security. In 1987 he returned to Princeton to earn his PhD in Politics, and from 1988 through 1992 he lived in Moscow. He also traveled and researched extensively in non-Russian regions of the USSR, including Armenia and Georgia. Immediately prior to joining USC he was a fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study, where he finished his book "Russia and the Idea of the West." Professor English is also the author, co-author, or editor of several other books and many journal articles. His interests range from national identity and politics to the media's impact on foreign policy-making.
