Welcome to my page!
I'm the Deputy Chair of the Justice Studies department and the Head of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences' Strategic Review Committee.
I arrived at Montclair State in 2008 with a Ph.D. in Political Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
My latest book Migration and Radicalization: Global Futures (Palgrave 2021) examines the current world migration system and how it links to extremism worldwide (https://www.amazon.com/Migration-Radicalization-Futures-Gabriel-Rubin/dp/3030693988).
I recently published Presidential Rhetoric under Bush, Obama and Trump: Inflating and Calibrating the Terror Threat after 9/11 (Palgrave 2020), which provides a sweeping and comparative approach to how the war on terrorism has been conducted in America through the three Presidents who have held the position since 9/11. Here's a link to the book: (https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9783030301668)
My first book Freedom and Order: How Democratic Governments Restrict Civil Liberties after Terrorist Attacks--and Why Sometimes They Don't (Lexington Books 2011) explains variation in government legislative responses to terrorism. Here's a link to the book: (https://www.amazon.com/Freedom-Order-Democratic-Governments-Attacks_and/dp/0739147358/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=freedom+and+order+rubin&qid=1615842283&s=books&sr=1-2).
I've also published work on international human rights, terrorism and globalization, terrorist radicalization in prisons, and state failure.
