Fabian Hilfrich




After doing my undergraduate studies in modern history, medieval history, and political science at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich, I got my M.A. in American history from Washington University in St. Louis. In July 2000, I received my Ph.D. in history from the Freie Universität in Berlin. I have taught U.S. history at the Freie Universität Berlin, German and European history in Riga, Latvia and I have joined the Institute for Contemporary History (foreign office branch in Berlin) as a research fellow in the fall of 2001. In September 2006, I took up my first position at the University of Edinburgh as lecturer in American history. I am now a Senior Lecturer in the School.

It tells the story of key campaigns in US history, and by doing so it explores how politics changed over time—and how understanding the past sheds light on the current campaign.
