Blake Gopnik,"Points of Departure," Washington Post, 1 June, reviews two exhibits in Washington, DC: Jacob Lawrence's"Migration," a rare display of all 60 panels of his series at The Phillips Collection; and"Aaron Douglas: African American Modernist," an exhibit at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
George F. Will,"Caesaropapism Rampant," Newsweek, 2 June, argues that American romanticism about presidential leadership leads, inevitably, to disillusionment. In"Caesarism will do just fine," Eunomia, 26 May, our colleague, Daniel Larison, explains that George Will hasn't the faintest idea what" caesaropapism" is.
Finally, have a look at"United States History" on Cliopatria's History Blogroll. Had you asked me two years ago what was the fastest growing interest in the history blogosphere, I would probably have said"Military History." But that growth was largely fed by massive interest in the American Civil War. In the last 18 months, the American history blogosphere has grown dramatically. For American urban historians, there are blogs about Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco. There are excellent blogs about American intellectual, legal, political and religious history. It's a feast!

I have no problem with the setup of the lists. I just wanted to note the drift of my H&E history posts.

It seemed preferable to me to split your two blogs between two different blog lists, Tim. So, History and Education is listed among Historians Who Write about Many Things, while the Intellectual History blog is listed among United States History. I can change that if you wish, but I don't know that much is gained by it.

While I write on a variety of history and education-related topics at "History and Education: Past and Present," my history posts are related to the U.S. about 90 percent of the time.
