Allen Guelzo reviews Sean Wilentz’s The Rise of American Democracy in the current issue of the
Claremont Review of Books. It is not avalialable yet on line. Buy a copy asap, and frame it. It explains in a few thousand words what Wilentz is up to, what he doesn’t understand, what he hides, and thereby explains the soul-flaw of the Democratic Party. Thank you Professor Guelzo!
UPDATE: The Guelzo review, "Good Democrats and Bad Democrats," is now online here. Do read it.
