Beverly Gage is professor of 20th-century American history and director of the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy at Yale University. Her courses focus on American politics, statecraft, social movements, and government, broadly conceived. Gage’s first book, “The Day Wall Street Exploded: A Story of America in its First Age of Terror,” examined the history of terrorism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, focusing on the 1920 Wall Street bombing. In addition to her teaching and research, Gage has written for numerous journals and magazines, including the Journal of American History, the Journal of Policy History, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Slate, and The Nation.
