Prior to joining the full-time SSP faculty in August of 2002, Professor Daniel was Special Assistant to the Chairman of the National Intelligence Council and prior to that he held the Milton E. Miles Chair of International Relations at the US Naval War College, Newport, RI, where he also chaired the Strategic Research Department in the College's Center for Naval Warfare Studies. While on the SSP faculty, Professor Daniel has also served as a Fellow in the Departments of Military History of the Swedish National Defence College, Stockholm. He has been a Research Associate at the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London, a Visiting Fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington, and a resident Research Fellow in the Disarmament and Conflict Resolution Project of the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research in the Palais des Nations in Geneva. His book on Strategic Military Deception was designated a "book of the year" by Choice, the journal for librarians, and his book on Anti-Submarine Warfare and Superpower Strategic Stability was selected as a “notable naval book” by the US Naval Institute. A third book, Coercive Inducement and the Containment of Crises, was the first runner-up for the Grawemeyer Award on Ideas for Improving World Order. He was Federal Employee of the Year in the Professional Category in 1995, and he has received several exceptional performance awards from the Department of the Navy and the Central Intelligence Agency.
