January 11, 2015 - New York News and Politics asked Alexander Gourevitch, Assistant Professor of Political Science, to weigh in with 52 other historians on Barack Obama's legacy.
"Historians are experts on the past, not the future. But sometimes the wide-angle perspective they inhabit can be useful in understanding the present.

"SPECIALTY license plates — which bear the logo of a college or a sports team, or a slogan like "Save Our Seas" or "Stop Child Abuse" — bring in lots of money for state governments, as well as the schools, nonprofit groups, professional organizations and other entities that sponsor them.

Mark Blyth, Professor of International Political Economy and International Studies, in December 2014 was awarded the Hans Matthöffer Prize for Economic Journalism from the Friedrich Ebert Foundation and the Hans and Traute Matthoffer Foundation for his book "Austerity: The History of a Dangerous Idea".
