Thomas J. McCormick is an emeritus professor of history at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, the same place he got a Ph. D.[1] where he succeeded William Appleman Williams and continued the groundbreaking work of the so-called Wisconsin School, credited with launching the revisionist New Left movement in diplomatic history.[2]
