Jefferson Decker is an assistant professor of American Studies and Political Science at Rutgers University-New Brunswick, where he teaches and writes about U.S. political history, public law, and American political development. He is the author of The Other Rights Revolution: Conservative Lawyers and the Remaking of American Government (Oxford University Press, 2016), which describes how conservative and libertarian lawyer-activists challenged the regulatory state—especially on environmental policy—and shaped the governing agenda of the American right. He is currently working on a political and policy history of late-twentieth-century America, which is tentatively titled Bull: The Stock Market and the Politics of Financial Security, 1974-2000.
