Newly added on the front page: Bill Kauffman’s column on his visit to the Alexander Gun Show (“genuine democrats would come away refreshed by an encounter with working and rural citizens who are pro-Bill of Rights, anti-corporatist, and open to radical alternatives”) and Richard Gamble’s penetrating take on the religious roots and lingering legacy of Wilsonianism. Having suffered through eight years of “hard Wilsonianism” under Bush, are we now in for four more of humanitarian Wilsonianism under Obama?

Of course, to get Kauffman every month and to read all of TAC‘s essays and reviews, you have to subscribe. (And here’s a teaser of what subscribers will be seeing in the next issue: a major profile of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford; Jim Bovard on Obama’s threat to medical privacy; an exclusive excerpt from Thomas Woods’s bestselling new book on the financial crisis, Meltdown; Jeffrey Hart on the Burkean imagination of Lionel Trilling; reviews by David Bromwich, Jacob Heilbrunn, and Philip Delves Broughton — and much more!)
