He is author of Combating Jihadism: American Hegemony and International Cooperation in the War on Terrorism (University of Chicago Press, 2009). He teaches courses at Haverford on Jihadi movements and on the Middle East. He served in the Israeli army for five years and received his Ph.D. in Government from Cornell University.
