Carl J. Guarneri is Professor of History at Saint Mary's College of California, where he has taught since receiving his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University in 1979. He has also been a visiting professor at Colgate University and the University of Paris. A historian of nineteenth-century America, Guarneri has won national fellowships for his research and published books and articles on reform movements, utopian socialism, the Civil War, and American cultural history. Among these are THE UTOPIAN ALTERNATIVE: FOURIERISM IN NINETEENTH-CENTURY AMERICA (Cornell University Press, 1991) and two edited collections: RELIGION AND SOCIETY IN THE AMERICAN WEST (University Press of America, 1987), and HANGING TOGETHER: UNITY AND DIVERSITY IN AMERICAN CULTURE (Yale University Press, 2001). He is currently writing a book on the Civil War career of Charles A. Dana. He has co-directed institutes for the National Endowment for the Humanities on "Rethinking America in Global Perspective" at the Library of Congress. His survey-course reader, AMERICA COMPARED: AMERICAN HISTORY IN INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE (Cengage, 2nd Edition, 2005), and his brief textbook, AMERICA IN THE WORLD: UNITED STATES HISTORY IN GLOBAL CONTEXT (McGraw-Hill, 2007) are seminal undergraduate texts. His anthology, TEACHING AMERICAN HISTORY IN A GLOBAL CONTEXT (M.E. Sharpe, 2008), offers a globalizing "toolkit" for U.S. history instructors. Through his publications and presentations, Dr. Guarneri has been a leading voice in the movement to globalize the study and teaching of U.S. history.
