Tom Nichols is a professor at the Naval War College with deep expertise on Russia and the role that warfare plays in international affairs. With his new book, however, he looks at expertise itself. In The Death of Expertise: The Campaign Against Established Knowledge and Why It Matters, he argues that too many people have embraced the idea that experts should have no more standing in government or society than they themselves do. He makes the case that experts do matter and that this kind of false egalitarianism is dangerous. The Death of Expertise has been published in eleven foreign editions of the book: Chinese (complex and simple), Korean, Indonesian, Japanese, Russian, Ukrainian, Finnish, Portuguese, Italian, and Romanian.
