Charles Krauthammer writes a syndicated column for The Washington Post for which he won the Pulitzer Prize. It is published weekly in more than 400 newspapers worldwide. For three decades, his influential writings have helped frame the very shape of American foreign policy. He coined and developed The Reagan Doctrine (Time, April 1985), defined the structure of the post-Cold War world in The Unipolar Moment (Foreign Affairs, Winter 1990/1991), and outlined the principles of post-9/11 American foreign policy in his much-debated Irving Kristol Lecture, Democratic Realism (AEI Press, March 2004).

A column, says Krauthammer, is not just politics. "My beat is ideas, everything from the ethics of cloning to strategy in Afghanistan. I also do public service, like reading Stephen Hawking's books and assuring my readers that no, it is not you -- the books are entirely incomprehensible."
