Grandin graduated from Brooklyn College with a B.A. (1992) and from Yale University with a Ph.D. (1999).

He won the Latin American Studies Association's Bryce Wood Award for the best book published in any discipline on Latin America for Blood of Guatemala: A History of Race and Nation.

Eric Hobsbawm called The Last Colonial Massacre a "remarkable and extremely well-written work" that

is about more than the dark history of Guatemala and the Cold War in Latin America. It is about how common people discover politics. It is about the roots of democracy and those of genocide. It is about the hopes and defeats of the twentieth-century left. I could not put this book down.

Grandin has published widely on US foreign policy, the Cold War, and Latin American politics in The Nation, The New York Times, Harpers, the London Review of Books and He has appeared on the Charlie Rose Show and has interviewed Naomi Klein and Hugo Chávez. In the summer of 2009, he reported from Honduras on that country's coup, appearing a number of times on Democracy Now! and Grit TV and writing a series of reports in The Nation and elsewhere on the consequences of the overthrow of Honduran president Manuel Zelaya.

Grandin worked as a consultant with the Historical Clarification Commission (Spanish: Comisión para el Esclarecimiento Histórico, or CEH), the Guatemalan truth commission, and has written a number of articles on its methodology, including its genocide ruling and its use of historical analysis. Grandin was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2010. Grandin was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in April 2010.
