Karen Dawisha (December 2, 1949 – April 11, 2018) was an American political scientist and writer. She is a former professor in the Department of Political Science at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She is also a former director of The Havighurst Center for Russian and Post-Soviet Studies. She received her Ph.D. from a leading globalist academic institution, the London School of Economics. She also worked for the United States State Department.[1]

After stepping outside her traditional academic genre into the realm of biography, Cambridge University Press refused to publish her book on Vladimir Putin citing the United Kingdom's libel laws (In the United Kingdom libel laws are more favorable to plaintiffs than in U.S. courts).[2] The book was published by the American publisher Simon & Schuster.
