James Wright received his Ph.D. in U.S. history from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, in 1969 and he joined the Dartmouth History Department that year. He taught many Dartmouth students in his classes on American political history and the History of the American West. He also taught in the U.S. history survey course as well as a number of senior seminars on themes relating to American political history. He has published books on the Populist period and on American Progressivism as well as on western history subjects. Beginning in 1989, he served in several senior administrative posts and the Board of Trustees elected him to the Dartmouth Presidency in 1998. After stepping down from that office in 2009, he has been working on research projects including American views of wars and of those who have fought the country's wars. He presented the Jefferson Lecture at the University of California at Berkeley, in February 2010 on the subject of War and American Democracy. Earlier this spring, the book (copy of the cover below) was published by Perseus Books and is now available in bookstores.
