Joshua S. Goldstein is an award-winning scholar of international relations who has written and spoken widely on war and society, including war's effects on gender, economics, and psychological trauma, and on peace and diplomacy. His book, A Bright Future (with Staffan Qvist) is on international responses to climate change, especially Sweden's success in rapid decarbonization using nuclear power. It is the basis of the new Oliver Stone documentary, Nuclear Now!

Goldstein’s book War and Gender won the International Studies Association's "Book of the Decade" award. He is coauthor (with Jon C. Pevehouse) of the widely used textbook International Relations. Goldstein's book Winning the War on War: The Decline of Armed Conflict Worldwide (2011) was the Conflict Research Society's "Book of the Year" in 2013.

Goldstein has published articles in Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, American Political Science Review, and Journal of Conflict Resolution, among others, and Op Ed pieces in The New York Times, Washington Post, and elsewhere.
