Emmanuel Teitelbaum


I am an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science and The Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University.  My areas of academic interest include comparative politics, the political economy of labor, economic development and the politics of South Asia. I have published or articles in such journals as the American Journal of Political Science, World Politics, Comparative Political Studies, Political Research Quarterly, PS: Political Science & Politics and the Journal of Development Studies. My most recent book, Mobilizing Restraint: Democracy and Industrial Protest in Post-Reform South Asia explores the dynamics of state-labor relations following the implementation of economic reforms in South Asia and was published with Cornell University Press. The book is based on my doctoral dissertation, which was awarded the 2007 Gabriel Almond Award for Best Dissertation in Comparative Politics.
