Tad Daley is a political author, an international policy analyst, and a zealot for the vision of enduring world peace through enforceable world law. He directs the Project on Abolishing War at the Center for War/Peace Studies in New York and Washington. His first book, APOCALYPSE NEVER: Forging the Path to a Nuclear Weapon-Free World, was released by Rutgers University Press in 2010 and again in paperback in 2012. You can see praise for the book, published reviews, and audios and videos of Tad on the stump at www.apocalypsenever.org.
Tad holds a B.A. in Political Science from Knox College, an M.Sc. in International Studies from the University of Southampton in England, a J.D. from the University of Illinois, and a Ph.D. in Public Policy Analysis from the RAND Graduate School of Policy Studies. Previously, Tad served as a policy advisor and speechwriter for Congresswoman Diane Watson (D-California), the late U.S. Senator Alan Cranston (D-California), and Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio). He ran for U.S. Congress himself in a 2001 special election to represent mid-city LA. And he spent several years as a member of the International Policy Department at the RAND Corporation.
Tad is currently working on his second book, on the history and future of the ancient idea, dating back at least to Dante, that someday the human race might establish no less than a Federal Republic of the World -- and thereby bring about the abolition of armies, the abolition of war, and public policies directed at serving not individual national interests but the common human interest, and the global public good.
