I think Last in Their Class is worth a look. But I am terribly biased.

You gotta love Joe Miller's Cross-X - he's a local blogger.

Joe said...

Yeah. Give me a bold. I'm from your hometown, and it's a hometown story.

I've browsed and read quite a bit in "Dissent in America" and found it fascinating and revealing. Great to learn about the roots of my--admittedly liberal--personal political leanings. Margaret Sanger and Henry David Thoreau were two of my favorites but there was lots of food for thought--even Paul Weyrich, notorious conservative :), had some fascinating ideas!
