New William Marvel Book

I was browsing in my local bookstore on this rainy Saturday and came across William Marvel’s Mr. Lincoln Goes To War.  I bought it but probably will not have a chance to read it until over the summer.  Given my last post on Mark Grimsley’s discussion about counterfactuals and contingency I was pleased to see that Marvel touches on the very same subject in the preface.  I look forward to reading it.

My sister-in-law sent me the new biography American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer.  I started it last night and can’t put it down – absolutely fascinating.
