Prof. Robert Cook
Sample Lecture – US Civil Rights, 1865-1941
Robert Cook is Professor of American History at the University of Sussex. Although he considers himself primarily as a historian of the United States during the era of the Civil War, his research interests lie at the intersection of race, politics and society in both the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries. He has published six books to date including popular surveys of the civil rights movement and the Civil War era as well as a well-received study of the Civil War Centennial of the 1960s, Troubled Commemoration, which was shortlisted for the 2008 Lincoln Prize in the United States.
