About the Author

Bruce J. Schulman is the William E. Huntington Professor and Chair of the History Department at Boston University. He is the author of three books and editor of two others: From Cotton Belt to Sunbelt (N.Y.: Oxford University Press, 1991); Lyndon B. Johnson and American Liberalism (Boston: Bedford Books of St. Martin's Press, 1994); and The Seventies: The Great Shift in American Culture, Politics, and Society (N.Y.: Free Press, 2001). The New York Times named The Seventies one of its Notable Books of the Year for 2001. An anthology of essays, co-edited with Julian Zelizer, entitled Rightward Bound: Making America Conservative in the 1970s, was published by Harvard University Press in March 2008, and another, The Constitution and Public Policy, by Pennsylvania University Press in 2009. A contributor to the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and numerous other publications, Professor Schulman has appeared as an expert commentator on many television and radio programs and has consulted on productions by the History Channel, PBS, and ABC-News. Schulman has held research fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History, Marjorie Kovler Fund of the Blum-Kovler Foundation, the University of California Faculty Development Awards, and the Mabelle McLeod Lewis Memorial Fellowship in 1987. In 1989-90, Schulman served as Director of the History Project in California, a joint effort of the University of California and the California State Department of Education to improve history education in the public primary and secondary schools. For his efforts, he received a letter of commendation from the State Department of Education. He currently leads a Teaching American History (TAH) Grant program that partners Boston University with the Boston Public Schools. In 1993, as Associate Professor of History at UCLA, Schulman received the Charles and Harriet Luckman Distinguished Teaching Award and the Eby Award for the Art of Teaching. In January 2004, the Organization of American Historians appointed him to its Distinguished Lecturer program. In January 2006, the American Historical Association conferred on him the Nancy Lyman Roelker Award for graduate mentorship. In December 2007 he was named the United Methodist Scholar/Teacher of the Year. Schulman is currently at work on a volume for the Oxford History of the United States covering the years 1896-1929. He lives with his family in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Schulman's teaching and research concentrate on the history of the modern United States, particularly on the relationships between politics and broader cultural change. His first book, From Cotton Belt to Sunbelt: Federal Policy, Economic Development, and the Transformation of the South, 1938-1980, analyzed the effects of federal economic policy in transforming the American South from the time of the New Deal until 1980. Decrying the South's economic backwardness and political conservatism, the Roosevelt Administration launched a series of programs to reorder the Southern economy. A generation of young liberal southerners entered the national government to preside over these policies. After 1950, however, the national security state supplanted the social welfare state as the South's principal benefactor. The book contrasted the diminished role of national welfare programs in the postwar South with the expansion of military and growth-oriented programs, analyzing the federal government's contributions to the South's remarkable economic growth and to the excruciating limits of that prosperity. Ultimately, he related these developments to southern politics and race relations. By linking the history of the South with the history of national public policy, he attempted to unite the two issues that dominate the domestic history of postwar America-the emergen
