Todd Moss

 

As the world becomes more dangerous, U.S. foreign policy is increasingly complicated by the intersection of defense, diplomacy, and development. The U.S. government tries to bring dozens of federal agencies together to respond to crises and solve problems.  Is this working? Does the United States have the tools we need to meet o national security in a rapidly changing world?  And what might we learn about these dilemmas from… fiction?

Todd Moss, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, is now senior fellow at the Center for Global Development in Washington DC and a nonresident scholar at Rice University’s Baker Institute in Houston.  Todd’s work focuses on US-Africa relations, energy policy, and private investment. Previously, he has been a professor at the London School of Economics (LSE) and Georgetown University and has worked at the World Bank and the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). He’s the author nonfiction books including African Development: Making Sense of the Issues and Actors (2011) and Oil to Cash: Fighting the Resource Curse with Cash Transfers (2015).  Todd also writes an international thriller series for Penguin’s Putnam Books about a State Department crisis manager including The Golden Hour (2014), Minute Zero (2015), Ghosts of Havana (2016), and The Shadow List (2017).
