He has lived in post-revolution Iran, Yemen, and both pre- and post-war Iraq, and he spent time with the Taliban before 9/11. Dr. Rubin earned a Ph.D. in history from Yale University in 1999. His dissertation, The Making of Modern Iran, 1858–1909: Communications, Telegraph and Society, won Yale's John Addison Porter Prize.
