About the Author

JOSEPH B. TREASTER has been a reporter for The New York Times for more than thirty years. He began his career with The Times as a foreign correspondent in Southeast Asia and has reported from dozens of countries in Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean for The Times and other publications. While based in New York, he wrote about illegal drugs, crime, and terrorism for several years and traveled on special assignments to the Middle East, Latin America, Europe, and the Baltic states, before studying at the Columbia Business School in 1995 and 1996 and shifting to financial news reporting for The Times. He has received numerous journalism awards for his work domestically and internationally, including three from the Overseas Press Club of America for work in Africa and Latin America.


"This new biography of Paul Volcker... Adds colour and personality to a figure who often came across to the general public as a 'cold and arrogant numbers cruncher.'" (CFO Europe, July 2004) "Treaster's depiction of Volcker's honesty and resilience highlights some attributes that American policy makers should keep in mind as the Greenspan era draws to a close." (New York Times Book Review, May 23, 2004)
