New issue of '49th Parallel' Out - my Taft review is featured
The Spring 2011 issue of 49th Parallel is now out - you can find it here. It includes my review on The Political Principles of Robert a Taft.
Writing the review article was an interesting and challenging experience. I read all the time, but applying an academic frame of mind to what I was reading and coming up with a constructive critique that might make other readers consider the text was a new experience. I worry still as to whether I was fair and just - although the review will probably only be read by a very tiny number of people - and most of them won't care a jot about what I have to say!
Still, there's a much longer article for the same academic journal in peer review at the moment, and another review article to research - this time on Truman and Immigration. All part of the rich academic learning experience.
