Christopher Eric Hitchens (13 April 1949 – 15 December 2011) was an Anglo-American[9] author, columnist, essayist, orator, religious and literary critic, social critic, and journalist. Hitchens was the author, co-author, editor or co-editor of over 30 books, including five collections of essays on culture, politics and literature. A staple of public discourse, his confrontational style of debate made him both a lauded intellectual and a controversial public figure. He contributed to New StatesmanThe NationThe Weekly StandardThe AtlanticLondon Review of BooksThe Times Literary SupplementSlateFree Inquiry and Vanity Fair.

Having long described himself as a social democrat, a Marxist, and an anti-totalitarian, he began to break with the established political left after what he called the “tepid reaction” of the Western left to the Satanic Verses controversy, followed by the left’s embrace of Bill Clinton and the antiwar movement’s opposition to NATO intervention in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1990s. His support of the Iraq War separated him further. His writings include critiques of public figures such as Bill ClintonHenry KissingerMother Teresa and Diana, Princess of Wales. He was the elder brother of the conservative journalist and author Peter Hitchens. He also advocated for the separation of church and state.
