The book is out

Posted by James McPherson on June 16, 2008

The first copy of my new book, with forward by Sydney Blumenthal, arrived in the mail today. Because of the nature of publishing, it seems like a long time ago that I finished it, but it looks like Northwestern University Press did a nice job with it. The editors there were great to work with.

July 8 update: You can see a news release about the book here.
