Robert D. Kaplan is a national correspondent for The Atlantic and a writer for Stratfor. He was recently senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security. He is the best-selling author of 15 books on international affairs and travel, translated into many languages. Kaplan is a provocative essayist who has more than three-decades' worth of traveling and reporting experience.

He was the first American writer to warn in print about a future war in the Balkans. In addition to Kaplan's written work, he has been a consultant to the U.S. Army's Special Forces Regiment, the U.S. Air Force, and the U.S. Marines.

Kaplan's writings have also been featured in The Washington Post, The New York Times, The New Republic, The National Interest, and The Wall Street Journal, among other newspapers and publications. His more controversial essays about the nature of U.S. power have spurred debate in academia, the media, and the highest levels of government.

Kaplan's publication, Balkan Ghosts was chosen by The New York Times Book Review as one of the "best books" of 1993. The Arabists, The Ends of the Earth, An Empire Wilderness, Eastward to Tartary, and Warrior Politics were all chosen by The New York Times as "notable" books of the year. He is also the author of The Revenge of Geography: What the Map Tells Us About Coming Conflicts and the Battle Against Fate. In addition, Kaplan has lectured at the FBI, the National Security Agency, the Pentagon's Joint Staff, major universities, the CIA, and business forums.
