My current book project, The People’s Two Powers: Public Opinion and Popular Sovereignty, traces the history of the distinction between public opinion and popular sovereignty in France from Rousseau to Tocqueville and its relevance for contemporary democratic theory.

A second project, The Metahistory of Liberalism, revisits the history of liberalism as a still-ongoing process of reinvention of preferred liberal traditions in light of favourite conceptions of liberalism as a political doctrine.

My next book project, Propaganda and Democracy: A History, examines how political theorists, sociologists, and psychologists understood the relationship between propaganda and democracy in Europe and the United States from the 1890s to the 1960s.
