Reeves received his Ph.D. in Renaissance literature from the University of Pennsylvania, and in 1979 began working as a Professor of English Language and Literature at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. In 1999, he began focusing full-time as a Sudan researcher and analyst, publishing extensively both in the US and internationally. He has testified several times before the Congress, has lectured widely in academic settings, and has served as a consultant to a number of human rights and humanitarian organizations operating in Sudan. Working independently, he has written on all aspects of Sudan's recent history. His book about Darfur, A Long Day's Dying: Critical Moments in the Darfur Genocide, was published in May 2007.
