Associate Professsor of History

I specialize in the history of global political economy, business history, and the intellectual history of capitalism. My book, Forging Global Fordism: Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, and the Contest over the Industrial Order, came out with Princeton UP in 2020. The book explores how the 20th-century automobile industry took shape as activist states confronted America, competed over industrial development, and clashed over the terms of globalization. It also talks about the ideological origins of mass production in Midwestern Populism, the Soviet context of Gramsci's Prison Notebooks, and how the Nazi state harnessed American corporations to its purposes.
