Anne Applebaum attended Yale University and won a Marshall Scholarship to study at the London School of Economics and Oxford University. She moved to Warsaw in 1988 to work for The Economist, providing valuable first-hand reportage on important social and political transitions in Eastern Europe before and after the fall of Communism and the end of the Berlin Wall in 1989. She has been a reporter and editor for the Evening Standard and the Spectator, as well as writing for many other publications, and formerly served as an editorial board member of the Washington Post.
She is also Director of Political Studies at the Legatum Institute in London, where she runs projects on political and economic transition. Her second book, Gulag: A History (2003), was awarded the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction. Applebaum speaks English, French, Polish and Russian. She is married to Radoslaw Sikorski, a Polish politician and writer and the couple has two sons. In 2005, her husband served as Minister of Defense of the Polish government.
