Andrei Markovits is currently an Arthur F. Thurnau Professor and the Karl W. Deutsch Collegiate Professor of Comparative Politics and German Studies at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He is the author and editor of many books, scholarly articles, conference papers, book reviews and newspaper contributions in English and many foreign languages on topics as varied as German and Austrian politics, anti-Semitism, anti-Americanism, social democracy, social movements, the European right and the European left. Markovits has also worked extensively on comparative sports culture in Europe and North America. However, his newest book entitled "From Property to Family: American Dog Rescue and the Discourse of Compassion" (co-authored with Katherine N. Crosby) represents the culmination of his lengthy scholarly (and practical) involvement in the changed human - animal relations that have altered public discourse and behavior in the United States since the late 1960s and early 1970s.
