About the author

Michael Doran, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute and the author of Ike’s Gamble: America’s Rise to Dominance in the Middle East (2016), is a former deputy assistant secretary of defense and a former senior director of the National Security Council. He tweets @doranimated.


Mosaic is inviting our most loyal readers to join us for a unique intellectual experience.

Michael Doran is one of Mosaic’s—and the country’s—most thoughtful and influential analysts of America’s role in the world, with particular emphasis on the Middle East.

We’re delighted now to announce a new Mosaic lecture series with Dr. Doran that will tackle—for the first time—an even more ambitious topic: how every American president, from Harry Truman to Donald Trump, has understood and shaped America’s strategic relationship with Israel.

This distinguished series of lectures, free of cost to our readers, has been made possible through the generous support of Bryna and Joshua Landes.
