Peter Beinart is editor-at-large at The New Republic, for which he writes a weekly column. He was the editor of the magazine from November 1999 until March 2006. He also writes a monthly column for The Washington Post, and is a contributor to Time. His articles have appeared in numerous publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Financial Times. Beinart is a frequent guest on a variety of shows on both television and radio.
In his recent book, The Good Fight: Why Liberals and Only Liberals Can Win the War on Terror and Make America Great Again (2006), Beinart argues for a reinvigorated liberalism which does not simply define itself against the right but fervently opposes the totalitarianism which stalks the Islamic world today. Liberals must see democracy as a just goal continually worth striving for, both at home and abroad.
