Things Noted Here and There
Sean Wilentz,"A Less Perfect Union," NY Times, 10 September, and Jonathan Yardley,"After the War Between the States, the South Set Out to Rise Again, By Any Means Necessary," Washington Post, 10 September, review Nicholas Lemann's Redemption: The Last Battle of the Civil War.
Tim Rutten,"ABC Follows a Path to Shame," LA Times, 9 September, surveys the wreckage.
Alan Wolfe,"Defending the Ph.D.'s," NY Times, 10 September, reviews Michael Bérubé's What's Liberal About the Liberal Arts.
Finally, at Patahistory, Dave Davisson is thinking large and thinking small. In his Patahistory Manifesto, he declares an end and a beginning of history. And, he invites your reactions to it. Two earlier manifestoes: Manan Ahmed's The Polyglot Manifesto and Sage Ross's History of Science Manifesto.
