S-USIH roundtable on A Commercial Republic: second entry

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. A review from Tim Lacy went up yesterday, and today's entry, from Lawrence Glickman, is available here. Glickman's reading of the book finds him discussing three major themes: the role of Liberalism in the book's narrative; the use of historical precedents in explaining later developments; and the reliance of elite sources as evidence, both in my book and in intellectual history more broadly.
