He has also edited Critical Insights: Mark Twain (2010), Dear Mark Twain: Letters from His Readers (2013), and Critical Insights: Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (2017); co-edited (with Kevin Mac Donnell) Mark Twain and Youth: Studies in His Life and Writings (2016); and prepared the Penguin Classics editions of both The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (2014) and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (2014). He is currently writing a book on films adapted from Mark Twain's works. Dr. Rasmussen is also recognized as a scholar in African history, a field in which he has published five books.
