Alexander L. George (May 31, 1920 Chicago - August 16, 2006)[1] was an American behavioral scientist. He was the Graham H. Stuart Professor of Political Science Emeritus at Stanford University.


His parents were Assyrians from Urmia in north-west Iran.[2] He earned undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of Chicago, where he received his doctorate in political science in 1958.

He was the among the first to lead behavioral scientists into studying the "very painful and dangerous" issues of nuclear crisis management during the Cold War era and to carry knowledge directly to policy leaders, Hamburg said. George "focused a great deal of attention on reducing nuclear danger," he added. "I regard him as a truly great scholar and human being."[1]
