This week the Society for U.S. Intellectual History will be hosting an online roundtable about my book, A Commercial Republic: America's Enduring Debate over Democratic Capitalism, on its blog. The first entry, by Tim Lacy, is up now. Like me, Tim was an original founder of the blog and, later, the society itself. Unlike me, he is still there, fighting the good fight on behalf of U.S. intellectual history. Tim's contribution offers a great summary of the book's major points, along with a few friendly criticisms. He also places it in a contemporary context, since it is now four years old. A lot happened in that time! Read the first entry in the roundtable here.
