At least Gould wrote it, rather than someone odious. I hope it meets expectations better than Chace's 1912, which was a fair read but not very deep.

There's always hope: it could be crap. Fingers crossed!Now: back to this manuscript I'm working on about the paradox of American slavery and American freedom. I think I'll call it American Freedom, American Slavery. No one's written about that, right?

Well, the back cover posts endorsements from Michael Kazin, John Milton Cooper, and John Morton Blum, so I think there's a limit to how much crap it can be. I'm actually looking forward to reading it when it comes out. (BTW Idio: long time no see!)GG, as good as Morgan is, I'm sure you can do much better.

What are you actually writing about, Jeremy?
Jeremy Young on 4/09/2008 11:19 AM:
The culture of leadership in the American Progressive Era, or some such topic. It's still early, so I haven't got a title and such things yet.

Nice. I'm *several* years behind you (applying to start a history Ph.D. in the fall of '09) and I'm still trying to pick an area of study. I got out of it in undergrad by doing my concentration in 'War and Society', which allowed me to do whatever the hell i wanted... oh well.

Bubs -- e-mail me if you like. I'd be interested to hear where you're looking to go at this point, and what your interests are.
