Tom

Engelhardt

I suddenly realized that out there was another kind of news.

Behind The Nation Institute's tomdispatch.com, there really is a Tom—Tom Engelhardt. What started as a tangential branch of his regular investigative writing career eventually morphed into the site it is today—a site that has welcomed contributions from high-profile names like Bill McKibben, Rebecca Solnit, Noam Chomsky and others.

Engelhardt remains a Fellow at The Nation Institute and continues to write books, most recently The United States of Fear, and The American Way of War: How Bush's Wars Became Obama’s.

Additionally, Engelhardt co-founded the American Empire Project and teaches at the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of California, Berkeley.
