Trevor Thrall is a se­nior fel­low for the Cato In­sti­tute’s De­fense and For­eign Pol­icy De­part­ment. Thrall is an as­so­ciate pro­fes­sor at Ge­orge Ma­son Uni­ver­sity’s Schar School of Pol­icy and Gov­ern­ment. He teaches cour­ses in in­ter­na­tional se­cu­rity, po­lit­i­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tion, and U.S. mil­i­tary in­ter­ven­tion.

His re­cently edited book, Amer­i­can For­eign Pol­icy and the Pol­i­tics of Fear: Threat In­fla­tion since 9/11 (Rout­ledge 2009), ex­am­ined why and how the Bush ad­min­is­tra­tion was able to build pub­lic sup­port for the war in Iraq in 2003. The com­pan­ion vol­ume to that work, Why Did the United States In­vade Iraq? (Rout­ledge 2011), col­lects com­pet­ing ex­pla­na­tions about why the ad­min­is­tra­tion de­cided to go to war in the first place.

Prior to ar­riv­ing at Ge­orge Ma­son, Thrall was an as­so­ciate pro­fes­sor at the Uni­ver­sity of Michi­gan-Dear­born where he di­rected the Master of Pub­lic Pol­icy and Master of Pub­lic Ad­min­is­tra­tion pro­grams. He re­ceived his PhD in po­lit­i­cal sci­ence from MIT.
