Scott McLemee's latest column at InsideHigherEd features an enlightening interview with journalist Clay Risen, whose new book discusses the 1968 race riots after Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination. It's well worth a read. [Update] I'm not sure how I missed this, but our own Rob Ellman also did an interview with Risen, which he published on this very blog.

Ralph Luker's outdone himself with this linky post, which contains, among other things:

- this month's History Carnival, by Whitney Trettien;
- a must-read post on public-domain images and copyfraud, by Sage Ross;
- Jane Austen and Zombies, by The Little Professor; and
- hilarious book reviews of a hilariously overpriced book, by reviewers.

What's on your mind?

Hey Jeremy. I actually interviewed Clay Risen recently and X-posted it on Progressive Historians just before Martin Luther King Day. I definitely learned a lot from reading his book.

I've been having an immense amount of fun over at Edge of the West, though, as Rauchway points out, when people start spoofing Krugman in comments, it may be time to move on....

Blogger Amnesty Day came and went: the only blogs which I read that I don't link to are blogs that are either very personal or popular enough that my linkage would be pointless. I suppose I should branch out and explore more history blogs, but I really don't have the energy right now.

Rob, sorry about that -- I knew I'd seen another one recently, but I couldn't remember where. I don't read blogs as much or as carefully as I used to, even this one. I'll update the post with a link to your previous piece.
