Robert Gellately is a Newfoundland born Canadian academic who is one of the leading historians of modern Europe, particularly during World War II and the Cold War era. He is presently Earl Ray Beck Professor of History at Florida State University.

Gellately's most recent work is "Lenin, Stalin, and Hitler: The Age of Social Catastrophe" (Alfred A. Knopf, 2007).

Gellately recently published a set of original documents dealing with the 1945-46 Nuremberg trials of war criminals in "The Nuremberg Interviews: Profiles of the Leading Nazis, by the Prison Psychiatrist to the Nuremberg Trials" (Alfred A. Knopf, 2004).

His other books include "Backing Hitler: Consent and Coercion in Nazi Germany, 1933-1945" (Oxford University Press, 2001). It has been published in German, Dutch, Spanish, Czech, and Italian. Japanese and French translations are in press. Backing Hitler was chosen as a main selection for book clubs in North America and the United Kingdom.

His first book was "The Politics of Economic Despair: Shopkeepers in German Politics, 1890-1914" (London, 1974). In 1990 he published "The Gestapo and German Society: Enforcing Racial Policy, 1933-1945" (Oxford University Press.) It has been translated into German and Spanish.

In addition, Gellately has co-edited a volume of essays with Russian specialist Sheila Fitzpatrick, "Accusatory Practices: Denunciation in Modern European History, 1789-1989" (Chicago University Press, 1997). With his colleague Nathan Stoltzfus (also at Florida State University) he co-edited a collection called "Social Outsiders in Nazi Germany" (Princeton University Press, 2001). With Ben Kiernan, Director of the Genocide Studies program at Yale, he recently co-edited "The Specter of Genocide: Mass Murder in Historical Perspective" (Cambridge University Press, 2003).

Professor Gellately has won numerous research awards, including grants from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Germany and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
