Steven Brill        

Award-Winning Journalist and Author

Steven Brill is the author of "Class Warfare: Inside the Fight to Fix America's Schools," an uncompromising, vital account of the state of American education. His articles have appeared in such publications as the New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, and TIME. Mr. Brill's passion for journalism goes beyond writing: he is the founding CEO of Brill's Content, Court TV, The American Lawyer magazine, and most recently Press+, an e-commerce engine that's bringing news publishing into the 21st-century economy.

We all know that, in an increasingly skill-driven world, a good education is more important than it's ever been. And we also know that the quality of an education depends more than anything else on the quality of teachers. "Class Warfare" tracks the struggle to raise the standard of teaching in America, considering the roles that charter schools and teachers' unions will both have to play to solve the current crisis. Walter Isaacson, author of the bestselling "Steve Jobs," calls "Class Warfare" "one of the most important historical narratives of our time," "an inspiring saga" and "investigative journalism and powerful writing at its best." We agree. Steven offers the definitive take on the key domestic issue of our time -- you don't want to miss it.

Mr. Brill is a professor of journalism at Yale University and the founder of the Yale Journalism Initiative, which recruits and trains journalists. His other books are "After: How America Confronted the September 12 Era" and "The Teamsters."
