Friedberg, professor of politics and international affairs, has been named the first holder of the Henry Kissinger Chair in Foreign Policy and International Relations at the Library of Congress.
The program offers scholars the opportunity to spend nine months in residence at the Library of Congress, where they will conduct foreign policy research.
Beginning in September, Friedberg will explore the rise of Asia and its implications for the United States, with particular attention to the increase in relative wealth and technological competence of the nations of eastern Eurasia and the western Pacific.
Friedberg has been a Princeton faculty member since 1987. He also is acting director of the Woodrow Wilson School's Center of International Studies and director of its Research Program in International Security.
He is the author of two books on foreign relations: "The Weary Titan: Britain and the Experience of Relative Decline, 1895-1905," and "In the Shadow of the Garrison State: America's Anti-Statism and Its Cold War Grand Strategy."
