Brief appearance in Smithsonian Network television series The Real Story. I was a talking head in the episode about Star Trek.
New York Times article from 2011 about the S-USIH conference, featuring a couple of quotes from me
"Liberals in Space: The 1960s Politics of Star Trek" (The Sixties, Rutledge, December 2012, 5:2)"
"The Limits of Liberalism: Pragmatism, Democracy and Capitalism" (Contemporary Pragmatism, Editions Rodopi, December 2008, 5:2)
In advance of the publication of A Commercial Republic, I wrote a series of essays on the S-USIH blog to summarize the book and the focus of each of its chapters.
Introduction: Government Economic Intervention
Chapter One: Government and the Market in the Federalist Era
Chapter Two: The Jacksonian Backlash
Chapter Three: The Corporation as Government Economic Intervention
Chapter Four: Full Employment and "New Deal Liberalism"
Chapter Five: Postwar Liberalism and American Capitalism
Chapter Six: Conservatism, Stagflation and Supply-Side Economics
Here's a few posts that I particularly enjoyed writing:
"The 'New Political History' and U.S. Intellectual History": From 2012, this one is pretty much what the title says it is.
"History, Interdisciplinarity and Politics in the New Republic": From 2009, this was a (very long) assessment of Sean Wilentz's then-new project taking aim at those who, in his view, confuse history for philosophy, or perhaps scholarship for activism. His thoughts eventually took the form of the book The Politicians and the Egalitarians.
From all the way back in 2007, these are my reflections on Richard Rorty, on the occasion of his death.
