Kevin M. Kruse

A professor of history at Princeton University, Kevin M. Kruse studies the political, social, and urban/suburban history of twentieth-century America, with particular interest in the making of modern conservatism. Focusing on conflicts over race, rights, and religion, he also studies the postwar South and modern suburbia. Kruse is the author of White Flight: Atlanta and the Making of Modern Conservatism (2005) and a coeditor of three collections: The New Suburban History (2006); Spaces of the Modern City (2008); and Fog of War: The Second World War and the Civil Rights Movement (2012). His newest book, One Nation under God: How Corporate America Invented Christian America (2015), explores the making of American religious nationalism in the mid-twentieth century.
