He is the author of Claiming Lincoln: Progressivism, Equality, and the Battle for Lincoln’s Legacy in Presidential Rhetoric, published by Northern Illinois University Press in 2011.

He teaches Principles of American Politics, Classical Political Thought, American Political Thought and Constitutional Law.
