Christopher Wolfe is a professor of politics at the University of Dallas and president of the American Public Philosophy Institute. He is also the former co-director of the Thomas International Center in Raleigh-Durham NC and emeritus professor of political science at Marquette University. His main area of research and teaching for two decades was Constitutional Law and American Political Thought, and he is the author of various books, the best known of which is The Rise of Modern Judicial Review, which the late Judge Robert Bork, in a 2006 Wall Street Journal contribution, listed as one of the five best books on the Constitution. Dr. Wolfe subsequently shifted his work back to political philosophy, and especially the area of natural law and liberal political theory. His book Natural Law Liberalism was published by Cambridge University Press in 2006.
