Happy new year, and welcome, Anne Kornhauser!

Happy new year! We are delighted to ring in 2016 with the news that Anne Kornhauser will join us as a guest blogger for the month of January.

She is an Associate Professor in History at the City College of New York, where she teaches courses on American Legal History, American Liberalism, and "The Age of Human Rights," among other offerings. She received her PhD in History from Columbia University and has held the prestigious Golieb Fellowship in Legal History at New York University.

Most important, for our purposes, she is the author of Debating the American State: Liberal Anxieties and the New Leviathan, 1930-1970, which was recently published by the University of Pennsylvania Press and which she plans to blog about here. She has also recently authored a contribution to an edited collection on Ruth Rosner Kornhauser, the noted criminologist.

Welcome, Professor Kornhauser!
