We Have a Winner! (Wilsey Edition)

February has been a hectic month, with significant illness and significant responsibilities as chair of the History Department at Northwestern.

Nonetheless, I wanted to recognize that we have a winner for our comment contest. Congrats to Michael Brennen for his comment below.

I will be in touch with Michael to get him his copy of the book.

Book Give-away: Kittelstrom Edition

The marketing folks at Penguin recently sent me an extra copy of Amy Kittelstrom’s forthcoming book The Religion of Democracy: Seven Liberals and the American Moral Tradition.

I’ve not read it extensively, yet, but it carries some nice recommendations from well-known historians Jill Lepore, Daniel Walker Howe, and David D. Hall.

Kittelstrom is using intensive intellectual history to create a genealogy of liberalism in America.

I’ll be happy to send this book on to some fortunate reader. To win it, though, requires that you post a comment on this page. In the comment, answer this question: how would you define American liberalism? Be civil, be reflective.

Whoever leaves the best definition by noon on April 24 will get a copy of the book.
