Mark Irving Lichbach is Professor and Chair of Government and Politics at the University of Maryland.  He received a B.A. (1973) from Brooklyn College of the City University of New York, an M.A. (1975) from Brown University, and a Ph.D. (1978) in political science from Northwestern University.  A theorist interested in social choice and a comparativist interested in globalization, Lichbach explores the connections between collective action theories and political conflict as well as the connections between collective choice theories and democratic institutions.  He is the author or editor of many books, including the award-winning The Rebel’s Dilemma, and of numerous articles that have appeared in scholarly journals in political science, economics, and sociology.  His work has been supported by NSF and private foundations.  Lichbach, who was Book Review Editor of the American Political Science Review (1994-2001), served as chair of two other political science departments: the University of Colorado (1995-1998) and the University of California-Riverside (1998-2001).
