John Glad (born December 31, 1941) is an American academic who specializes in the literature and politics of exile, especially Russian literature. Glad has written about Nazi Germany, World War II and the Holocaust. He received his Ph.D. degree from New York University, and is a retired professor of Russian studies, having taught at Rutgers University, the University of Chicago, the University of Iowa, and the University of Maryland. He is also the former Director of the Kennan Institute for Advanced Russian Studies in the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, in Washington, D.C., and a Guggenheim Grant recipient. He has written for The Jewish Press, Mankind Quarterly and The Occidental Quarterly.

Glad has also written about the eugenics movement, including how it is practiced in Israel and about eugenics beliefs among Zionists. He avers that before World War II, eugenics was popular among humanitarians of both the right and left, and bemoans the fact that, in the wake of the Holocaust, it has become a nearly taboo subject. His first book, Future Human Evolution: Eugenics in the Twenty-First Century, advances humanistic arguments in behalf of universal eugenics and has been translated into eight languages. His second book, Jewish Eugenics (2011), traces the interactions between Jewish activists and eugenics beginning with support for eugenics and then after the Holocaust purportedly condemning eugenics. However, for most Jews, he argues that eugenics has continuing support but is now discussed as part of the genomic revolution. Following a different format from most books on eugenics, this book includes a lengthy chronology of events from year to year showing Jewish advocacy for or rejection of eugenics, as well as Jewish positions on the nature/nurture debate from the 18th century right up to 2010.
