Andrew is a Professor of Political Science and Statistics at Columbia. He has maintained his own blog for some time, posting about topics in both statistics and political science. His posts here will focus on the latter. Those of you interested in the finer points of Bayesian hierarchical modeling can continue to read his blog. With David and several others, Andrew’s latest book is Rich State, Poor State, Red State, Blue State: Why Americans Vote the Way They Do.
Philip is a Professor of Government at Hamilton College. He has been blogging at Polysigh, where, to my knowledge, he was the first to note Obama’s careful courting of 1970s music fans. His work focuses on political parties, American political history, and race. His most recent book is The Unsteady March: The Rise and Decline of Racial Equality in America.
We are glad to have Andrew and Philip aboard!
