Chris DeRose is a New York Times bestselling and award-winning author and American historian.

His works include "The Presidents' War: Six American Presidents and the Civil War That Divided Them" (Rowman & Littlefield/Lyons Press 2014), "Congressman Lincoln: The Making of America's Greatest President" (Simon & Schuster/Threshold 2013) and "Founding Rivals: Madison vs. Monroe, the Bill of Rights, and the Election That Saved a Nation" (Regnery History 2011). DeRose is also the author of "Clash of Titans," the cover story for the official magazine of "The History Channel," in support of their "Men Who Built America Series," as well as "Lincoln's Other War," a Sunday Washington Post lead op-ed.

DeRose's writing on American political history is firmly grounded in his 20 years of electoral experience across five different states. He has always been struck by how politics-and people-have remained the same over time.

DeRose was formerly the senior litigation counsel to the Arizona Attorney General, trying complex and Constitutional cases, prosecuting serious crimes on appeal, and enforcing public corruption laws. He was formerly a law professor, teaching Constitutional Law, Election Law, and International Law, among other classes. He was named "Professor of the Year" by students for the 2014-2015 school year.

DeRose has been highlighted in the New York Times, Washington Post, National Public Radio, Christian Science Monitor, Human Events, and four installments of C-SPAN "BookTV."

DeRose is a featured speaker at venues throughout the United States, having recently addressed members of Congress at the U.S. Capitol and spoken to a capacity crowd in New York's Bryant Park. He serves as Chairman of the Board of Scholarly Advisors for President Lincoln's Cottage, the first presidential retreat. A native of Chicago, DeRose lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
