George Ehrhardt teaches political science at Appalachian State University in beautiful Boone, North Carolina. Somehow he managed to spend four years at Carleton College without becoming a progressive, and went on to study at George Washington University and Indiana University at Bloomington. His research focuses on Japanese politics generally and a Buddhist social movement turned political party in particular. Liberated by tenure, he has been known to show up to class dressed as a pirate and teach about subversive topics like American conservatism. He and his wife homeschool their two daughters.
