Jonathan Schell was the journalist who changed the way we think about war and peace in the Nuclear Age with his several books, countless articles, and commentary. For almost twenty years, he was the peace and disarmament correspondent at The Nation. At the time of Mr. Schell’s death he was the Lannan Fellow at The Nation Institute and the Doris M. Shaffer Fellow for many years prior to that. In the words of Katrina vanden Heuvel, “It is difficult to imagine The Nation without his thoughtful, humane, and powerful voice.”
