Holiday Cheer

I've been neglecting my work on A Patriot's History of the United States and A People's History of the United States this fall due to preoccupation with other matters, but I have not entirely forgotten this blog. For my two or three loyal readers anxiously waiting for more output, I can offer only links to two tidbits of heart-warming cheer.

Bob Dylan's "Must be Santa" from YouTube (thanks to Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz for sharing the link)

Rick Perlstein's "The 1960s, Refracted," published yesterday in The American Prospect.

James, just discovered this site because like a lot of writers I'm an obsessive self-googler, and I'm intrigued by the project--I'm interested to go back and check out your Patriot/Peoples comparison.

Welcome Rick. As you poke around, you may find one or two indications of the high regard I have for your scholarship. As I write more about the Sixties, more references to your work will appear.

James, shoot me an email at nixonland@live.com. I want to know more about the "New Social Studies of the 1960s." Highly, highly relevant to the part of my next book dealing with this fascinating story:
