    I was wondering if anyone has read the The Republic for Which It Stands by Richard White. I have it on my Amazon wishlist.

    Read it. Pretty good. Not to the level of What Hath God Wrought, its colleague in the Oxford History of the United States. I guess I'm less interested in the post-Civil War era.

    Few books are as good as What Hath God Wrought?
     
    Chesco United repped this.

    I didn't post the last Autobiography I taught in the world lit class: Wole Soyinka's Ake: Years of Childhood, and its follow up:

    [​IMG]

    Native Realm: A Search for Self Definition by noted Polish poet, Nobel Laureate, and UC Berkeley professor of Slavic Language and Literature, Czeslaw Milosz.

    As far as possible in this book I have avoided simplifications, and although the autobiographical fragments are only a pretext, I doubt that I appear on these pages as a haloed figure....
