Tom Nichols is Professor of National Security Affairs, US Naval War College, a columnist for USA Today, and a contributing writer at The Atlantic.

He is a former aide in the US Senate and has been a Fellow of the International Security Program at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

In OUR OWN WORST ENEMY: The Assault from within on Modern Democracy, Tom Nichols challenges the current depictions of the rise of illiberal and anti-democratic movements in the U.S. and elsewhere as the result of the deprivations of globalization or the malign decisions of an undifferentiated “elite.” Rather, he places the blame for the rise of illiberalism on a different source: the people themselves.
