Thomas Friedman has been reporting since the early 1970s, when he was sent to Beirut to report on the Lebanese civil war. He later worked as a foreign correspondent for the New York Times, eventually becoming the bureau chief in Beirut, where he wrote about conflict in the Middle East.

In recent years, Friedman has concentrated on environmental and economic global interdependence. He won Pulitzer Prizes for his international reporting from Lebanon (1983) and Israel (1988) and for distinguished commentary (2002). His books include the award-winning bestsellers Hot, Flat and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution and How It Can Renew America and The World is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century.
