In 1968, he first published the book Historical Consciousness: The Remembered Past.

In 2005, he published one of his most recent books, Democracy and Populism: Fear and Hatred, which examines the current state of American democracy. During his career, he served as a history professor and the chair of the History Department at Chestnut Hill College, and has taught at Harvard, Columbia, and LaSalle universities.
