The arrival of the latest William and Mary Quarterly (or WMQ, as I affectionately call it) has occasioned its usual flutter of excitement among its devotees. The following items in the table of contents caught my eye:
- “Tom Paine’s Common Sense and Ours,” by Sophia Rosenfeld
- “Culture and Governance: Reflections on the Cultural History of Eighteenth-Century British America,” by Michael Meranze
- “Go West: Mapping Early American Historiography,” by Claudio Saunt, which includes some highly amusing walleye-vision maps of the geographical distribution of WMQ articles’ subjects
- A host of book reviews, whose subjects we mostly own
Come visit WMQ at the library, or (if you’re at a TJF computer or your institution subscribes) check it out online at the History Cooperative.
