Deborah Kaple


I am a Princeton PhD, and a Research Scholar and Lecturer in the Sociology Department. I am a Comparative-Historical sociologist, and I teach classes on Russia and China. I have published 2 books on this theme with Oxford Univ. Press, and I'm working on another one at present. I was a very early "First Gen, Low Income, Pell Grant" undergraduate at Ohio State Univ., I have a Masters' Degree in International Studies at George Washington University, and worked at Wharton Econometrics in the Centrally Planned Economies Division for 5 years. I have been an Advisor for Rocky for several years. I am looking forward to meeting my Rocky Advisees soon.

Research Interests:  I am a communism specialist, and I focus on the Soviet Union/Russia and China
