October 27, 2023: New Scholarly Books: Democracy Awakening

[It’s been a bit since I dedicated a blog series to highlighting great new scholarly books—so this week I’m dedicating a blog series to highlighting great new scholarly books. Please add more recommendations, new, old, and anywhere in between, in comments!]

On the one hand, when a scholarly book by a public historian reaches #1 on the New York Times bestseller list it clearly doesn’t need a blog mention from me (or anyone). But on the other hand, that is an achievement very, very much worth highlighting and celebrating everywhere—and as someone who has been talking with the wonderful Heather Cox Richardson about public and online scholarship since she was first creating the idea for the great We’re History site, I couldn’t be more excited that her latest book, Democracy Awakening: Notes on the State of America, has taken her voice and work to even one more level of well-deserved prominence. Clearly I don’t need to tell y’all to check out this book, but I do need to say that it’s one of those things that gives me hope for the future, as long as we can keep learning and talking about the past.

October Recap this weekend,


PS. What do you think? Other books or publications you’d recommend?
