Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ron Suskind discusses ‘improvising’ in the war on terror

Ron SuskindRon Suskind, a University of Virginia and Columbia School of Journalism alumnus, publishes his new book, “The One Percent Doctrine: Deep Inside America’s Pursuit of its Enemies Since 9/11,” on June 20. Three days later, Suskind will be on Grounds to give a Miller Center forum on the topic of his book. A book signing will follow Suskind’s talk. Relying on unique access to former and current government officials, Suskind reveals in his latest work how the president and defense officials are “frantically improvising” in the war on terror.

From 1993 to 2000, Suskind was senior national affairs writer for The Wall Street Journal and in 1995 received the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing. His 2002 book, “The Price of Loyalty,” focused on former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill’s fall from grace.
