Hello. I’m a historian who studies democracy and social movements in the United States and India. Here you can learn about my books, my teaching, and my own history. You can also learn about LEAP and the Bajaj Lab.

I’ve included links to guitar and ukulele music, a recipe for homemade almond milk (courtesy of Gandhi), and my favorite childhood family portrait. Hope you find something meaningful here. If you have questions, thoughts, or your own recipes to share, feel free to contact me.


My most recent book, Brothers: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Race, is now available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Temple University Press and (hopefully) your local bookshop.
