About Dr. Drury:

A. Cooper Drury (Associate Professor) has been with the Department of Political Science at University of Missouri-Columbia since 2002. He received his Ph.D. in 1997 from the Arizona State University, and specializes in international relations. His research focuses on economic statecraft, the use of economic tools for foreign policy objectives.
