We are delighted to announce that Adam Tooze is joining the New Statesman as a Contributing writer. Adam currently holds the Shelby Cullom Davis chair of History at Columbia University and serves as director of the European Institute. One of the world’s leading experts on modern economic, intellectual and political history, as well as contemporary geopolitics, Adam is the author of books including Crashed: How a Decade of Financial Crises Changed the World (2018) and Shutdown: How Covid Shook the World’s Economy (2021), which was published this week.
Jason Cowley, editor-in-chief of the New Statesman, said: “I have long admired the breadth and quality of Adam’s writing. That he is joining us as a contributing writer is testament to our ambition as the magazine grows and deepens its coverage of world politics, economics, and the climate crisis. As part of our continued expansion, we will be joined by other leading writers and thinkers in due course.”
