Career

Franklin Foer httpsnaproductions3amazonawscomimagesfran

Foer has written for Slate and New York magazine. He served as editor of American magazine The New Republic from 2006 until 2010, when he resigned. He then became editor again in 2012. His book How Soccer Explains the World was published in 2004. The book Jewish Jocks, which he co-edited with New Republic writer Marc Tracy, was published in 2012; Foer has described it as an effort to avoid the "simple hagiography" he found in some of the many existing books about Jewish sports figures.

Foer was editor of The New Republic during the Scott Thomas Beauchamp controversy. His firing in December 2014 by New Republic owner Chris Hughes and his replacement by former Gawker staff member Gabriel Snyder provoked an editorial crisis that culminated in the resignation from the magazine of two-thirds of the people on its masthead.
