    I heard Nicholas Stargardt’s interview on New Books in History. Great stuff. Might be some lessons in there for thinking about the Confederate experience and memory.

      I will check that out. There has been so much published about the German military experience, but I haven’t seen much on the civilian experience.

    Kevin, just say you get a kick back when people buy from books on your site and be done with it. Your explanations are painfully obtuse.

    Mr. Levin,

    I did not realize that you are interested in economic history. If you are and are at an intermediate to advanced level of understanding of economics and have not yet read it, you absolutely have to get a copy of “A Monetary History of the United States: 1867-1960,” by Milton Friedman and Anna Schwartz. It is absolutely phenomenal and one of the most seminal, thought provoking and relentlessly challenging books on economic history ever written. It really is an extraordinary book.
