Chalmers Johnson JPRI Archive and New Publications

Dr. Chalmers Johnson was an eminent scholar and public intellectual who founded the progressive think tank JPRI. During his tenure as president of JPRI he published a series of best-selling books in partnership with The American Empire Project—an initiative that has brought together great thinkers such as Noam Chomsky, Andrew J. Bacevich, and Howard Zinn. We are pleased to maintain the Chalmers Johnson JPRI Archive (which also includes over 200 policy papers by Dr. Johnson and members of the JPRI Network), and publish new materials under both the JPRI and APPSI banners. Dr. Chiho Sawada now serves as editor-in-chief.
