Stephen L. Damours

Mr. Damours holds a Master’s degree from the University of Chicago in English Language and Literature. In 1966-1968 he taught English composition and literature and world literature at Cleveland State University. He was also extensively involved in theatrical productions during that period.

In 1968 he moved to Washington DC and shifted the focus of his studies and career to management and public administration. He held a variety of management consulting, program analysis, and human resources positions in the National Institutes for Science and Technology, the U.S. Department of State and other government agencies. During this period he co-authored the book, Management Analysis in Public Organizations.

Damours has served on the Board of Directors and Executive Council of the World Federalist Association (WFA) and on the Board of its successor organization, Citizens for Global Solutions. He chaired WFA’s Education Committee and Publications Task Force and served on WFA’s Partners Planning Commission and Growth and Outreach Commission.

He has also served on the Board of Directors and Executive Council of the Campaign for UN Reform (CUNR) and on CUNR’s Political Action Committee and Nominating Committee. He has engaged across the U.S. in public speaking on global issues at local, national and international events such as the World Federalist Movement’s 1995 celebration of the UN‘s 50 th anniversary in San Francisco.

He developed the Peace-War knowledge base, a key component of a computer program that asks questions of the user and feeds the information provided on any given country into a statistical inference engine. The knowledge base is then used to calculate the probability that a country will be at peace or at war in the near to mid-term future.

Damours spent five years conducting research on the wide range of subjects covered in his new book, America the Almighty: the Maverick Hyperpower. In response to this book he has been interviewed at length on U.S. foreign policy since the end of the Cold War on over 75 TV and radio talk shows throughout the United States and has spoken to groups in universities, civic organizations, bookstores, and other venues. He lives in Montgomery Village, Maryland and practices yoga for peace and aerobics for fitness.
