My most recent publication is American Wars (NY: Facts On File, 2012).
I am currently on a book entitled American Paradox: Building the State in the Long Nineteenth Century, 1750-1920.
I was reappointed a Distinguished Lecturer with the Organization of American Historians for 2012-15.
My academic duties are divided between the History Department, where I teach the courses on American and comparative political and economic history, and the Law and Public Policy and Society Graduate Program (College of SSH), in which I am Professor of Public Policy.
