Today in The University Bookman, check out my review of Walter Stahr’s new biography, Stanton: Lincoln’s War Secretary.
Two new articles today:
- At Hardball Times, I looked at what the “Replacement” in “Wins Above Replacement” means, and highlighted a few players whose careers fit the bill.
- And at The Federalist, I reviewed Hillary Clinton’s new book, What Happened, and examine whether anything she says in it meaningfully adds to the political discourse.
Today at The Federalist, I wrote about Sarah Palin’s defamation suit against the New York Times and why it should go to trial.
Today at National Review, I reviewed Richard White’s The Republic for Which It Stands: The United States during Reconstruction and the Gilded Age, 1865–1896, which is due to be released next month. White re-examines a period in the nation’s history with many parallels to our current time. If you like American history, it’s a good book for you.
I have two new articles at The Federalist that I neglected to post here when I was away on vacation:
- If We Topple Every Statue Of An Imperfect Person They Must All Come Down. I discuss how the anti-Confederate statue craze can easily tip over into iconoclasm, and how we should avoid it.
- Why We Need A New Holiday To Celebrate The Fall Of Fascism. Why August 14 should be a federal holiday to remind us of our victory in the fight against fascism.
Earlier this week, I wrote for The Federalist about eugenics rearing its ugly head again, this time in Tennessee. Since then, the judge mentioned in the article has reversed his position.
Today at The Federalist, I reviewed the book about the Dunkirk movie. Read about the history behind the movie and the spirit that makes the British strong in the face of tragedy.
As we approach the 154th anniversary of his epic defeat at Gettysburg consider: Robert E. Lee was not actually a very good general. My latest at The Federalist.
Today at The Federalist, I wrote about the religious liberty case handed down by the Supreme Court yesterday.
