He has been a keynote speaker to community groups, university audiences and companies around the country, and has served as an expert witness or consultant in a number of trials. Dr. Levin has been honored by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education as its Professor of the Year in Massachusetts.

One of Dr. Levin's most popular and provocative lectures is titled "Conspiracies, Cults & Militias: America Moves Toward the Millennium." As a sociologist, Dr. Levin has long studied the impact of extremist groups on society and, conversely, society's impact on them. From mass suicides by cults and terrorist bombings by domestic militias, he believes violent behavior by extremist groups will only increase as we enter a new millennium. He previews for audiences the problems to come and the possible solutions.
