Shawcross has worked as a journalist at the Sunday Times, produced documentary series for the BBC, and has contributed to publications such as the New Statesman and the Washington Post. The author of biographies of the Shah of Iran and Rupert Murdoch, Shawcross most recently published Allies, an analysis of the alliance between Britain and the United States with regard to the invasion of Iraq.

"Few journalists over the years have tackled such a variety of difficult international issues,” said Jefferson Adams, a member of the history faculty at Sarah Lawrence organizing this year’s Bozeman Lecture. “One cannot fail to be impressed by his independence of thought and his deep compassion for the casualties of these conflicts."
