Robert D. Cherry or Robert Cherry is a professor at Brooklyn College, with a Ph.D. in Economics from Kansas State University received in 1968. His main areas of interest include race and gender earnings' disparities in America, issues of poverty, low-income housing, tax reform to benefit working families, domestic relations, and immigration. These and other similar subjects are featured in his latest social policy book, published by NYU Press under the title, Moving Working Families Forward: Third Way Policies That Work.[1][2] Cherry conducts studies of black and Latino students who graduate with degrees from less competitive colleges in the private sector.[1]

Robert Cherry has written extensively on the subject of discrimination and race,[3] as well as the Holocaust in Poland.

Rethinking Poles and Jews [Polacy i Żydzi][edit]

Cherry is the co-author of Rethinking Poles and Jews: Troubled Past, Brighter Future published simultaneously in Poland as Polacy i Żydzi – kwestia otwarta (pictured),[4] one of the first books to address the negative assumptions and anti-Polish bias in the Holocaust literature.[5][6] The book, produced in collaboration with Dr Annamaria Orla-Bukowska of Jagiellonian University in Kraków, was published in English as well as in Polish; and described by Michael C. Steinlauf as "a ray of light amidst the acrimonious and generally uninformed polemics", and "a series of essays that pierce the stereotypes which have obscured historical reality" (Deborah Lipstadt, Denying the Holocaust).[4]
