...because music reminds us that a better world is possible.

I'm a professor of history (U.S., European, and world) with a specialization in U.S. labor history. I've published articles in both academic and popular outlets, including the Washington Post, the Progressive, the IndypendentCounterpunch, History News Network, TruthoutNew Politics, Open Democracy, Tropics of MetaROAR Magazine, Class, Race, and Corporate Power, etc. In a previous lifetime I wrote poetry and fiction, some of which you can read on this website—e.g., The Book of Joe: A Satire of Capitalist Society, one of the few things I've written that I'm somewhat proud of—and long, turgid reflections on various issues of philosophy, a subject in which I retain a keen interest. But, as with many sane people, my major preoccupation now is concern over the fate of humanity, which is headed into a perfect storm of crises. Much of the material on this website indulges that concern.
