Early life and education

Foreign policy views
In a May 2015 interview with BBC
, speaking as President of the Council on Foreign Relations
, Haass predicted a new era in world history, in part due to the muting of U.S. dominance by the more diffuse power wielded by states and non-state entities as a result of the proliferation of nuclear arms
, and several policy failures, which may bring about an "era of disorder" in the absence of any clear superpower
On October 4, 2017, Haass called for U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson
Haass is the author or editor of thirteen books on American foreign policy and one book on management.

- ^ @richardhaass (February 10, 2021). "I changed my registration to "no party affiliation" after 40 years. I worked for Reagan & Bush 41 & 43. But today's Rep Party no longer embraces the policies & principles that led me to join it. To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, I didn't leave the Republican Party; the Party left me. / In response: I made this change some 6 months ago when I concluded Trumpism was less an aberration for the Rep party than its new abnormal. I didnt announce it b/c I considered the change to be a mostly private matter, but am doing so now given the enormity of recent events" (Tweet). Retrieved April 21, 2021 – via Twitter.
