Specialty
French Revolution and Napoleon

Why
Because the French Revolution demonstrates the extremes of human thought and action.  It is both an inspiration and a warning.  If ever there was a lesson in the value of moderation, it was the French Revolution.

Courses taught

Favorite historical figure
Franklin D. Roosevelt because his leadership was essential to American survival of the Great Depression and victory over some of the darkest forces in human history during World War II.
