Research Interests

My research interests are many and varied. The following is just a short list of the many topics I investigate episodically: Civic engagement and community activism; local responses to environmental regulation; municipal government forms, structures and performance; multidimensional analysis of political beliefs; economic theories of public choice and organizational behavior; party competition models; inequality and poverty; futurology and political prognostication; student and faculty engagement, opinion and behavior; projecting election results; radical politics in Wisconsin; Green social movements; community partnerships & initiatives; University shared governance; faculty compensation; communal experiments and utopian thought.

Current Projects

I’m currently attempting to put the finishing touches on our book “Who Gets What from Government?’ co-authored with Ben Page, of Northwestern University, so that it can be published before the 2012 presidential election. I also need to complete articles on the right-wing utopian novel, the activities of the Knights of Labor and National Party in Northeast Wisconsin during the late-19th century, and the disconnect between the major political party platforms and the beliefs of their partisan adherents.
