The Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace is a public policy think tank and library founded in 1919 by future U.S. president Herbert Hoover.

The Hoover Institution is located on the campus of Stanford University, Hoover's alma mater. The Institution houses a large archive related to President Hoover, World War I, and World War II. As a think tank, the Hoover Institution is host to academic activity related to the basic tenets for which it stands: representative government, private enterprise, peace, personal freedom, and the safeguards of the American system.[1]

The Hoover Institution is influential in the American conservative and libertarian movements. The Institution has long been a place of scholarship for high-profile conservatives with government experience. A number of Hoover Institution fellows had connections to or held positions in the Bush administration and other Republican administrations. High-profile conservatives Edwin Meese, Condoleezza Rice, George Shultz, Thomas Sowell, Shelby Steele, and Amy Zegart are all Hoover Institution fellows. Retired U.S. Army gen. John P. Abizaid, former commander of the U.S. Central Command, was recently named the Institution's first Annenberg Distinguished Visiting Fellow.
