An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.
A professor of national security affairs at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, Stephen F. Knott is also the author of several books, including The Lost Soul of the American Presidency: The Decline into Demagoguery and the Prospects for Renewal, Alexander Hamilton and the Persistence of Myth, and Rush to Judgment: George W. Bush, the War on Terror, and His Critics. His new work is Coming to Terms with John F. Kennedy, which Atlantic contributing writer Tom Nichols says is “more than a book about JFK: it is a call to remember the inspiration for a better America.” Knott discussed Coming to Terms with John F. Kennedy with Dean Karayanis in March.
