Alan Levine's "The Political Thought of the Civil War" (Alan Levine, USA, 07/01/19 4:02 am)

I hope you're well.

With little Solli I don't have much time to write on WAIS but I read it regularly. The recent conversation on the US Civil War reminds me that I had a book come out last fall called The Political Thought of the Civil War, ed. Levine, Merrill, and Stoner (University Press of Kansas).

JE comments:  Alan, your volume is on my reading list for the summer break, which (yikes) is already halfway over.  Congratulations!  Click below.  I see from the Table of Contents that you contribute an essay on "scientific racism" in Antebellum America.  An intriguing topic.  I've always viewed this oxymoron (scientific racism) as a late 19th century/early 20th century phenomenon.  Weren't the Antebellum justifications for slavery more based on literalist readings of the Old Testament?  Did Roger Taney (Dred Scott) bring any "science" into his infamous decision?


My greetings to young Solomon Lincoln Levine.  His glorious name reassures us that some legal thinking is wise and just.

  • WAIS Effect: Professor James Stoner (Vincent Littrell, USA 07/02/19 4:26 AM)

    In response to Alan Levine, it's a small world! Professor James Stoner was on my Master's Thesis board at LSU back in the 1990s. I've exchanged emails with him since.

    JE comments:  And to complete the circle, Alan Levine and Vincent Littrell live in the same metropolitan region (Washington DC).

    Summertime is WAIS Effect time!
