James Rodney Schlesinger


Schlesinger was born in New York City, the son of Jewish parents, Rhea Lillian (née Rogen) and Julius Schlesinger.[1] His mother was a Lithuanian emigrant from what was then part of the Russian Empire and his father was of Austrian Jewish descent. He converted to Lutheranism in his early 20s. Schlesinger was educated at the Horace Mann School and Harvard University, where he earned a B.A. (1950), M.A. (1952), and Ph.D. (1956) in economics.


Between 1955 and 1963 Schlesinger taught economics at the University of Virginia and in 1960 published The Political Economy of National Security. In 1963, he moved to the Rand Corporation, where he worked until 1969, in the later years as director of strategic studies.

"Someone once said that war is hell, and peace is heaven. But we know that the opposite is true: War is heaven, and peace is hell."

James R. Schlesinger, honorary chairman of the OSS Society and member of the AFIO, in a speech to the Military Order of the Carabao.[2]

"Oil Crisis"

Schlesinger became a symbol of the long gas lines that “marked the beginning of the end of the Presidency of Jimmy Carter,” wrote energy analyst Daniel Yergin.[3]
