Scott Miller (born December 1960)[1] is an American author and reporter best known for his June 2011 book, The President and the Assassin.[2]

The book, subtitled McKinley, Terror and Empire at the Dawn of the American Century, gives an account of the years leading up to the assassination of President William McKinley by Leon Czolgosz in September 1901. According to Miller, Czolgosz was a "seething young anarchist" who "emerged from the shadows of the underclass with murder in his heart."[3] Miller characterized Czolgosz as believing that the "headlong rush" of the United States "toward a prominent place in a new world order had extracted a bitter price from the workingman ... and there existed no better means to set things straight than by murdering the leader of the United States."[3]

Miller holds degrees in economics and communications, and a Master of Philosophy in international relations from the University of Cambridge.[4] He has been a correspondent for several outlets including the Wall Street Journal, Reuters, and CNBC. During nearly two decades as an international correspondent, he reported from more than twenty-five countries, primarily in Europe and Asia.[4][5] He was the guest on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart on July 21, 2011.[6]
