Welcome to my website!

I teach Politics and am the founding chair (1995-2018) of the Urban & Environmental Policy department at Occidental College.

Here I post my articles, my course syllabi, interesting links about politics, policy and culture, and other content.

If you’d like to keep up-to-date on what I’m reading, writing,  and thinking about – mostly about politics, culture, music, and sports – feel free to become a Facebook friend and/or contact me ( about getting on my list-serve to which I send occasional emails with article that I and others have written.

If you’re interested in inviting me to speak at your college or university, conference, book festival, or meeting, or if you want to interview me for your newspaper, magazine, radio or TV show, contact me directly at:
