'The Scholarly Lecture: How to Stand and Deliver' By WILLIAM GERMANO @ The Chronicle Review:

'It's conference season again. All over academe, thousands of unsuspecting papers will make their way to the front of the lecture hall, where they will be read badly by scholars to fellow scholars who, slumped and glassy-eyed, will be wondering how late the dry cleaner stays open or whether The Sopranos is on that night.'

I have put up a new page with Selected Book Reviews in History. By no means is it a comprehensive list, but there are many books to choose from. I am limited to those for which I can access on line, so keep that in mind. There is no link from every page, so for now this post will have to serve. After the holiday I will update the site more fully. Happy Thanksgiving all!

"How to Combat 'American Amnesia'" is a column in todays Wall Street Journal about how the humanities are vital to our country's defense. It is written by Bruce Cole, chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

FrontPage magazine.com has an interview with Professors John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr who wrote In Denial: Historians, Communism, and Espionage. It describes how "the leftist academic establishment has ignored, denied and distorted the evidence that has come out of the former Soviet archives about the Cold War and American communism."

Added a few new links, mostly to the Medieval section of European History.

War Against the Weak by Edwin Black is a book about the Eugenics movement in America during the '20s and '30s and how it contributed to Hitler's racial cleansing agenda. The reviewer, David Plotz, points out that:

"In recent years, historians such as Daniel Goldhagen have made a cottage industry of finding new ways to blame Germans for the Holocaust. Black, by contrast, keeps finding new ways to put the onus on Americans. His last book, IBM and the Holocaust, traced how Big Blue encouraged Nazi Germany to use its punch-card technology, a tool that became essential for classifying -- then exterminating -- Hitler's subjects. Now, War Against the Weak offers a fierce, compelling, overlong account of how American ideas helped inspire -- if that's the right word -- Hitler's Reich."

In the end, it sounds if the book is a truly sad account, but Black's hypothesis is a reach.

Intelligence in War by John Keegan is reviewed here. According to Keegan, reviving the old one-man spy game is needed because the war on terrorism can't be fought with modern intelligence. Book review at the National Post (Canada) by Robert Fulford.

Ok, I'm playing a little "catchup" here and have posted some items from the last couple years below.

Closing time? Jacques Barzun on Western culture by Roger Kimball is a couple years old, but the book sounds interesting.

On the decline of Marxism By Joshua Muravchik at ForeignPolicy.com.

Richard Rorty reviews Truth and Truthfulness by Bernard Williams. A book review that evolves into a "lively" essay about an ongoing philosophical debate.

Has History Restarted Since September 11? Francis Fukuyama rethinks his original stance.

Archives have been restored.

posted by Marc | Tuesday, November 18, 2003

Site has been updated to provide some topical segregation. There are bad links, misspellings and other errata that will need to be ironed out as time goes on. For instance, there is no access to the archives right now and I don't know why. I'm working on it.

All of Reagan's links have been listed. The static file will be located at URL Bibliography to History & the Internet: A Guide by Patrick D. Reagan. The rest of the site will be continually updated and tweaked to tighten and remove superfluous, extraneous, and old links.

Once I finish inputting the original links from History and the Internet: A Guide, I'm leaning towards archiving (or linking directly) to that page for posterity. That document will remain statice. After that, I fully intend to examine each site linked, keep those that are the best and most relevant, and make this a working blog so that only the most updated and best sites will be linked to for any given area. It's probably impossible, but I'll give it a shot. This is by no means a criticism of Reagan, but it seems like he focused on some areas too much for me and not enough on others. This is to be expected, but since it is my blog, I will allow myself some indulgences here and there.

posted by Marc | Saturday, November 15, 2003

I only have to input and integrate those unique links from Reagan's book that both appeared in the main text and weren't included in the bibliography in any specific area. Then I will conduct link verification.

City Journal Autumn 2003 | Why History Has No End by Victor Davis Hanson

posted by Marc | Tuesday, November 11, 2003

Transcription of U.S. History links from Reagan's book is nearing completion. International up next and then integration of the links referenced in the book but not included in the categorized bibliography of the book. So far, I've notice some holes and will attempt to fill them after the transcription and link verification process is completed.
