Susan Jacoby, an award-winning independent scholar and writer, is the author of seven books, including Wild Justice: The Evolution of Revenge, a Pulitzer Prize nominee, and her recently published Freethinkers: A History of American Secularism. She began her career as a reporter for The Washington Post and has contributed articles to numerous publications, including The New York Times, The Nation, AARP Bulletin, Vogue, and Newsday.
