About Dr. Timothy J. Botti

Dr. Botti is founder and director of CLP Research. He has a Ph.D. in history from The Ohio State University and an M.B.A. in finance/marketing from the Weatherhead School of Business at Case Western Reserve University. Among his publications are Ace in the Hole: Why the United States Did Not Use Nuclear Weapons in the Cold War, 1945-1965 (Greenwood Press, 1996) and now available Envy of the World, A History of the U.S. Economy and Big Business (Algora Publishing, 2006).

Dr. Botti got the idea for RulersAndLeaders.com after test-marketing the web site and content with high school teachers. The Free Area with historical documents, other primary sources, American maps, and historical paintings is intended for use by students and teachers. The Members Area with quiz and subject slideshows is intended for use by teachers in classrooms. CLP Resesarch is looking into the possibility of developing a more comprehensive web site for advanced placement and honors social studies that incorporates the content of RulersAndLeaders.com and more.
