About The Author

Along with thousands of other young idealists, Keith Martin decided to enter public service following the election of John F. Kennedy. Dr. Martin's experience of spending a year in West Berlin after graduating from college (yes, he was in the crowd that day when President Kennedy gave his "Ich bin ein Berliner"speech), convinced him to enter the Foreign Service. His rather eclectic career since then has included domestic government service; the ministry, with a stint on Capitol Hill attempting to speak truth to power; and education, including writing and teaching graduate courses on political and social ethics. In addition, he served as a full-time paid staffer on the McGovern Presidential campaign and has been a volunteer a number of times since then, most recently for President Obama. If there is a common thread that ties all of this together, it is the sense of purpose, mission, and commitment that marked the 60s. Dr. Martin has a Bachelor of Arts from Harvard, a Ph.D. in international relations, and a Master of Divinity degree. He has lived in Washington, DC for over 40 years and considers politics to be life's greatest spectator sport.
