Fredrik Logevall
Vice Provost for International Affairs

2013 Pulitzer Prize Winner

Fredrik Logevall, a professor of history with expertise in U.S. foreign relations, sets the context for his Pulitzer Prize–winning book, Embers of War. The 11-year project stemmed from his burning conviction to tell the complete story of two Western powers in Vietnam: how both powers lost their way and how their officials chose war over a political solution.

“History can help us to see patterns.”
