Professor of History

Hi! I'm Greg Schneider, a professor of history at ESU. I have been at ESU since 1998 and have taught courses in modern American history, the 1960s, diplomatic history, the history of railroads and the history of conservatism. My research interests lie in the history of American conservatism. I have published five books, Cadres for Conservatism: Young Americans for Freedom and the Rise of the Contemporary Right (NYU Press, 1999), Conservatism in America since 1930: A Reader (NYU Press, 2003), Equality, Decadence and Modernity: The Collected Essays of Stephen J. Tonsor (ISI Books, 2005) and The Conservative Century: From Reaction to Revolution (Rowman & Littlefield, 2008). Most recently, my book on the collapse of the Rock Island Railroad was released by the University Press of Kansas in September 2013: Rock Island Requiem: The Collapse of a Mighty Fine Line.

Most of my free time is taken up with my two children, spouse and a Catahoula Leopard dog. Hobbies include model railroading, real railroading, the Chicago White Sox, and the Chicago Bears.
