An introduction to Berkeley’s signature method for problem-solving in the public interest.
Larry A. Rosenthal is Assistant Adjunct Professor at the Goldman School of Public Policy. After several years of affiliation with the Center on Civility & Democratic Engagement, he assumed a formal leadership role starting in the 2013-2014 academic year. A product of the masters and doctoral programs at the Goldman School, Rosenthal served as the long-time Executive Director of the Berkeley Program on Housing and Urban Policy, working closely with the late Professor John Quigley.
Rosenthal was Managing Editor of The Mortgage Meltdown, the Economy, and Public Policy (2009), a special issue of The B.E. Journal of Economic Analysis & Policy. He is co-editor, with John Quigley, of Risking Housing and Home: Disasters, Cities, Public Policy (Berkeley Public Policy Press, 2008), a collection of symposium papers commemorating the centennial of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire. Earlier he co-authored, with David Kirp and John Dwyer, Our Town: Race, Housing and the Soul of Suburbia (Rutgers University Press, 1995), an award-winning social, legal and policy narrative of the historic Mt. Laurel housing rights cases in New Jersey. Rosenthal has also written a variety of articles, book chapters, and research reports.
