Current Research Interests
Social character, history, and religion
I received my Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Kansas in 1999. Since then, I have published numerous articles and books on the social psychology of right-wing populism and American Character. In general, I study the intersection of political-economic and cultural forces that legitimate popular acceptance of economic exploitation, cultural-identity oppression, militarism, and destruction, and at the same time, the forces that promise a more fulfilling, egalitarian, and broadly prosperous future.
