Randall Baker & Mikola Polonsky
Professor Emeritus Dr. Randall Baker is an international expert on historical perspectives in the analysis of contemporary environmental policy and problems. He is also Distinguished Professor at New Bulgarian University in Sofia, Bulgaria, where he now resides. Baker is a sought-after speaker, respected researcher, and accomplished author of nearly two dozen books that range from academic to personal memoir. Baker's research focuses on the fundamentals of American civic and political life in terms of historical process on a comparative basis with Europe, the persistence of political anomaly and challenges to models of sovereignty, and the isolation of change as an independent variable and process in positioning for the future.
Mykola Polonsky works for the UN and is the author of several UNDP books. He served in Soviet military forces in Ethiopia during the Cold War and has a unique insight into the functions of the Soviet military and political machine. He also has a sense of satire and humor, seen in his numerous publications such as "Mission in Libya", "Chifra 2002" and others.
