In 2004 he published Bringing the War Home: The Weather Underground, the Red Army Faction, and Revolutionary Violence in the Sixties and Seventies (University of California Press). He co-edits The Sixties: A Journal of History, Politics and Culture (Routeledge; www.informaworld.com/thesixties), a new academic journal that features interdisciplinary and international research on the “long Sixties” (1954-1975). He has written articles and given numerous talks on the social movements of the 1960s and the politics and ethics of violence. His work in intellectual history concerns the relationships between modernity, knowledge, representation, and power.

He is involved in various social justice causes and groups, which inform his scholarship and teaching.
