Marcus Mabry is International Business Editor of The New York Times, directing and editing international coverage in the Business Day section of the newspaper and on the front page, as well as managing Business Day’s corps of foreign correspondents and contract contributors. Prior to coming to the Times in July 2007, Mabry spent 19 years at Newsweek, the last five as chief of correspondents, responsible for managing and deploying the magazine’s domestic and international correspondents. He also held positions as a senior editor on the U.S. and international editions; Africa bureau chief; Paris correspondent; Washington correspondent; State Department correspondent; and associate editor in the business section.

Mabry’s latest book is Twice as Good: Condoleezza Rice and Her Path to Power (Modern Times/Rodale, 2007), an intimate examination of the life and career of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Mabry’s first book, published in 1995 when he was 28 years old, is the memoir White Bucks and Black-Eyed Peas: Coming of Age Black in White America (Scribner’s), which recounts his personal journey from poverty and welfare, the son of single mother, to prep school, Stanford, and the largely white world of mainstream media. Both White Bucks and Black-Eyed Peas and Twice as Good were released in paperback in February 2008.
