… is at “Books & Culture,” the smart Christian review edited by John Wilson. And like the review linked in my previous post, this one is sharp and well informed (what’s going on here?). The reviewer is David Skeel.
Two factual clarifications, for the sticklers: 1) Contrary to what Skeel suggests in the review, I don’t say in the book that Pennsylvania allowed non-property-owners in the franchise before the revolution in that state; opening the franchise was in fact what that revolution was about. 2) I don’t call Wood and Hofstadter progressive historians. I’m not saying they’re not, but I don’t call them that in the book.
