COMMON-PLACE Publishes the October 2008 Special Issue on Politics
Political speeches masquerading as religious sermons? Minorities denied their rights by voting irregularities? People yelling about the Constitution in the street? Massive government interventions? Sound familiar? Yes, this is the story of early American politics as told in the latest issue of the interactive history journal Common-place. Guest edited by University of Missouri political historian (and Common-place blogger), Jeffrey L. Pasley, our special politics issue explores the cultural history of the American ballot, the surprising story of Big Government when the United States was still rather little, African American struggles to experience democracy before emancipation, and much, much more. Follow the discussions with our new interactive discussion threads and a special blog series, "Myths of the Lost Atlantis," featuring distinguished guest bloggers.
