About meI teach politics at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. As with many things, I learned about LibraryThing from Chris Brooke, whose wondrous library you would do well to examine. And see Jake Bowers' library for the latest in neo-Fisherian statistics and cyberpunk. I'm very behind in my tagging as well as my reading.

About my librarySpies, racial politics, epistemology, the Red Sox, history, Don Delillo, political theory, funny-sad Slavs, democratization, plus some stuff I've actually read.

Dear Rob,
Thanks for your suggestions. I have read some of Bickerts work, in the context of an NEH seminar I attended last year on economic history. I have not met Gavin Wright but I am familiar with his work. New York is fun, and Boston is sometimes as well, but Ann Arbor can be pretty interesting as well!
Best wishes,
Hey Rob,
Kind of! I am interested in Atlantic finance and cotton in the nineteenth century. I have been a fan of your library for quite some time.
Jo will be in LA in the late Spring (at the Getty Villa), and will be visiting SF from time to time. I'll be going to see her there at some point, and I hope I'll have the time to drop in on the Bay Area while I'm there, but nothing is yet set in stone.
I checked out your fiction collection. My brother, you are a *serious reader!
Phil Mullen (as I suppose you may know) was the owner/photographer of the local newspaper during the 40s and 50s, and thus took a lot of Faulkner-related pictures. I think he was still active in the early sixties, when Faulkner died and the Meredith riots occurred; he may have some credits from that era.

I'm quite interested in your book manuscript. I've got an odd hobby of collecting books and pamphletts relating to the civil rights era in Mississippi, from both sides; the oddest thing I've got ia a little hardcover book called THE DEEP SOUTH SAYS NEVER, which is inscribed by one of the founders of the Citizens Council; when it came out, they thought if they just told their story openly, people "up North" would see they were right, so they cooperated with the guy who wrote the book and then gave away copies to folks when it went into print.
