Author Daniel Horowitz
A Jewish “townie” from New Haven, Horowitz reconstructs the undergraduate career of the class of 1960 and follows its story into the next decade. He ponders the role of the university in protecting the prerogatives of class while fostering social mobility, and examines the growing significance of race and gender in American politics and culture.
Daniel Horowitz graduated from Yale in 1960 and later earned a doctorate in history at Harvard. He has held fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities; the National Humanities Center; the Schlesinger Library at Radcliffe College, Harvard; and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.
