Faculty Author Bob Jackson
Following in the spirit of the inaugural Our House event, the University Bookstore will be showcasing the work of University faculty authors. Each month throughout the academic year, the selected published works and information about a faculty author will be recognized on a dedicated table displayed prominently at the bookstore.
This month’s featured faculty author is Fletcher Jones Professor of Government and International Relations Dr. Robert Jackson. Two of his books, "Temptations of Power" and his latest release, "Global Politics in the 21st Century," are available at the bookstore.
“The book (Global Politics in the 21st Century) examines the way the great powers today, U.S., China, Japan, India , Russia, and the European Union, all attempt to handle the major crises of our time,” he said.
Jackson has taught at Redlands for 15 years and has been chosen as the Mortar Board Professor of the Year.
He has written and co-written 36 books and more than 50 articles. He received his bachelor’s degree in history and master’s degree in political science from the University of Western Ontario and his DPhil from the University of Oxford. He is a fellow of Clare Hall, and Centre of International Studies at the University of Cambridge, England and is a fellow of St. Antony’s College and the ‘Changing Character of War Programme’ at the University of Oxford. He is also appointed as an associate fellow in International Security at Chatham House (Royal Institute of International Affairs), London, and to the international advisory board for the Centre on Conflict and Peace Studies, a Kabul Afghanistan think-tank.
