His first book, The Falcon and the Eagle: Montenegro and Austria-Hungary, 1908-1914, was nominated for the George Louis Beer Prize in Diplomatic history and has been translated into a Serbo-Croatian edition. He is currently working on a sequel, tentatively entitled The Strange Death of the Kingdom of Montenegro, as well as biographical studies of Kurd von Schlözer, the first German ambassador to the United States; and Jacob Billikopf, a distinguished former UR student, labor lawyer, and Jewish philanthropist and social worker.
