James Lindsay

As one of the country’s leading authorities on American foreign policy and what goes on behind the scenes, James M. Lindsay has a wealth of knowledge about where the U.S. stands on the global stage, how it’s affected by shifting power dynamics, and how all these elements come together to shape our understanding of current issues.

Lindsay is the co-author of The Empty Throne: America’s Abdication of Global Leadership and America Unbound: The Bush Revolution in Foreign Policy, for which he has won multiple awards. On his blog, The Water’s Edge, Lindsay writes about the ways in which politics influence U.S. foreign policy decisions and how those decisions affect global power structures and domestic politics – topics that are frequently discussed on Lindsay’s podcasts, The President’s Inbox and The World Next Week. A member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Lindsay is a recipient of the Pew Faculty Fellowship in International Affairs, as well as the CFR International Affairs Fellowship.

James M. Lindsay is senior vice president, director of studies, and Maurice R. Greenberg chair at the Council on Foreign Relations. He has held leadership positions across many prestigious organizations, including the Brookings Institution, the National Security Council, the United States Institute of Peace, and the Center for International Affairs. He holds an A.B. in economics and political science from the University of Michigan, as well as an M.A., M.Phil., and a Ph.D. from Yale University.

Ryan Sanders started his career in journalism at the Corsicana Daily Sun before moving to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram where he covered education and city government. Later, working in public relations, he wrote speeches for CEOs, politicians, and the owner of the Dallas Stars hockey team. He has written scripts for television and radio ads, contributed to a book of local history for the Dallas mayor’s office, and placed op-eds and feature articles in multiple news outlets. His writing has won awards in community journalism, public relations, and fiction. He currently serves as editorial writer at The Dallas Morning News. Ryan is an ordained minister.
