From a Greek word to the Atlantic World, the new interim issue of Common-place (Vol. 13, no. 2.5) spans the globe. Joyce Goodfriend reviews Evan Haefeli’s new book on the improvisational nature of Dutch religious tolerance in New Netherland, and Glenda Goodman reviews Dorothy Potter on the changing fortunes of “cultivated” music in early Philadelphia. Kristen Doyle Highland visits the Grolier Club in New York to view the American Antiquarian Society’s bicentennial exhibition. And TR Hummer’s “Poetic Research” column features poems from a new book that grows entirely from the root of one word: the Greek skandalon, which gives us our “scandal.” For all this and more, please visit the new interim issue of Common-place, at http://www.common-place.org.
