Born and raised
in Brooklyn, a graduate of Columbia and Rutgers, Levine taught
in the History department at MSU since 1969, the year he
left graduate school. Trained originally as a Jacksonian
political historian, Levine's scholarly and writing interests
expanded to encompass the entire 19th century and beyond.
His works engage in a wide range of interelated themes and
topics, including the immigrant experience and assimilation,
American-Jewish history and culture, and American popular
culture. Peter Levine retired from MSU in 2000 and now lives
in Brooklyn where he continues to write. He is also an actor,
appearing in numerous productions in New York and throughout
always been about fathers and sons, courage and love, but no
fiction has ever brought them all together with such rich sentiment,
hilarious history and an eye for the game. Mazel tov. A home-run
