Two Reviews for You

The May June issue of Reason includes my review of Pure Goldwater, the John Dean and Barry Goldwater Jr.-edited collection of the late senator’s journals. The May 5 issue of The American Conservative, meanwhile, features my piece on Bill Kauffman’s Ain’t My America. Both books, coincidentally enough, are published by Palgrave-Macmillan, which is also home to James Bovard.

The magazine’s probably won’t be hitting bookstores and subscribers’ mailboxes for about 10 days or a little more — print has its advantages, but alacrity isn’t one of them. In the meantime, here’s a link to Dean and Goldwater Jr. discussing their book at the Huffington Post.

    Bah, I don’t subscribe to Reason. Hopefully they’ll have it online.

    Did you ever get the chance to review Ravens in the Storm?

    I’ve talked to an editor about doing a bigger New Left/1968 anniversary piece which would include my thoughts on Oglesby’s book. I’m shooting for mid-May for that. Wouldn’t mind writing up a piece specifically on Ravens in the Storm too, if there’s an opportunity.

    Very interesting reviews. I have online subscriptions to both magazines through Newsstand, so I already have the issues.
