    Donald E. Davis is Professor Emeritus of History at Illinois State University. Davis is the editor of No East or West: The Memoirs of Paul B. Anderson. Davis served as professor of Russian History at Illinois State University from 1964 - 2004, and has authored numerous articles, reviews, papers and opinion pieces.

    Eugene P. Trani is President Emeritus and University Distinguished Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University. Trani has authored, coauthored, annotated, and edited eight books and published more than one hundred articles and opinion pieces. An historian of American diplomatic history, Trani is the author of The Presidency of Warren G. Harding. Trani has also written on the role universities play as key drivers of economic development in their communities.

    Friends from graduate school at Indiana University, Bloomington, Davis and Trani have co-authored three books:
    The First Cold War: The Legacy of Woodrow Wilson in U.S.-Soviet Relations (University of Missouri Press), published first in English, then translated and published in Russian and Chinese; Distorted Mirrors: Americans and Their Relations with Russia and China in the Twentieth-Century (University of Missouri Press), also published in Russian and Spanish, and now this significant contribution to the understanding of a major figure in the history of journalism, Harrison E. Salisbury.
    During his career at The New York Times, Harrison Salisbury served as the bureau chief in post-World War II Moscow and reported from Hanoi during the Vietnam War, and in retirement witnessed the Tiananmen Square massacre firsthand. Davis and Trani's engaging biography of the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist makes use of Salisbury's personal archive of interviews, articles, and correspondence to shed light on the personal triumphs and shortcomings of this preeminent reporter and illuminates the twentieth-century world in which he lived.
