Thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore's Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel.

Dr. Steve Pieczenik, one of the world's most experienced international crisis managers and hostage negotiators, bases his novels, including his new work State Of Emergency, on his twenty years of experience in resolving international crises for four U.S. administrations.
Dr. Pieczenik is the first psychiatrist ever to receive a Ph.D. in international conflict resolution. He trained in psychiatry at Harvard and has both an M.D. from Cornell University Medical College and a Ph.D. in international relations from M.I.T. He served as a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under Secretaries Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance and James Baker.
As Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs in 1989- 1990, he developed the strategy and tactics that were used in resolving the thirty year internecine conflict in Cambodia. He helped design and negotiate the International Peace Conference in Cambodia in 1990 and conceptualized the involvement of the Perm Five and U.N. International Peace Keeping Force in Cambodia.

Similarly, he helped provide negotiation strategies for major U.S.- Soviet arms control summits during the second Reagan administration. His conflict mediation expertise was utilized in the peaceful transition of power in South Korea from a military dictatorship to a democracy as well as in working with the political opposition in Panama to oust general Manuel Noriega.
