Iain Benjamin King CBE FRSA is a British writer.[1] King was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 2013 Birthday Honours, for services to governance in Libya, Afghanistan and Kosovo.[2][3] He is a former Fellow of Cambridge University.[4][5][6][1]

Iain King held a senior political role in Kosovo's UN Administration,[7] and co-authored a book on the history of Kosovo and the difficulties of post-war state-building in the Balkans, called Peace at Any Price: How the World Failed Kosovo.

His 2008 book, How to Make Good Decisions and Be Right All the Time: Solving the Riddle of Right and Wrong, starts with a history of moral philosophy and then develops a hybrid methodology for ethical decision-making.[8] King's approach has been described as quasi-utilitarian.[9][10]

Secrets of The Last Nazi, based on extensive research of the Nazi era, is King's debut novel.[11]The Sun wrote: "A brilliant but unconventional academic races shadowy agents, a deranged killer and power-mad priests to expose a vast conspiracy."[12]

Making Peace in War is about Afghanistan.[13]
