Jeremy D. Bailey
Jeremy D. Bailey received his B.A from Rhodes College and his Ph.D. from Boston College, where his dissertation was the 2004 co-winner of the APSA' s E. E. Schattschneider Prize for best dissertation in American politics. He joined the University of Houston in 2007, and holds a dual appointment in the department of political science and the Honors College. Bailey's research examines how the tension between constitutionalism and political change transforms, and is in turn altered by, political theorists who are also political actors. He is the author of Thomas Jefferson and Executive Power (Cambridge University Press, 2007). His research has also been accepted or published in American Political Science Review, Review of Politics, Presidential Studies Quarterly and Publius: The Journal of Federalism. Bailey is now working on democratic theories of executive power, as well as a project on James Madison and the problem of public opinion.
