I’ve always viewed Alan Brinkley as a liberal. Am I right?

p.s. This isn’t being critical of his appearance, btw. I think it’s great that he’ll be there.

Yes, Brinkley is a liberal, albeit a thoughtful one. For that matter, so is Rick Perlstein. The interesting part about the recent scholarly interest in conservatism is that so many of those who are engaged in the investigation are people on the Left, yet this has not kept most of them from dealing with the subject in an evenhanded manner.

But don’t worry--there’ll be plenty of conservatives there as well!
