Jussi M. Hanhimäki (born February 3, 1965 in Espoo) is a Finnish historian, specializing in the history of the Cold War, American foreign policy, transatlantic relations, international organizations and refugees.
Hanhimäki is currently professor of international history at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, in Geneva. He has previously taught at the London School of Economics and Political Science. His book The Flawed Architect: Henry Kissinger and American Foreign Policy has been acclaimed by his academic peers. In the US media, however, its reception was lukewarm and the book was criticized for representing "standard-issue European leftist" views.
In 2006, Hanhimäki was named Finland Distinguished Professor by the Academy of Finland. He earned his Ph.D. at the University of Boston.
Hanhimäki's most recent books are The Rise and Fall of Detente: American Foreign Policy and the Transformation of the Cold War and, together with Benedikt Schoenborn and Barbara Zanchetta, Transatlantic Relations since 1945: An Introduction. In 2013 he published, together with Bernhard Blumenau, An International History of Terrorism: Western and Non-Western Experiences.
