We at ToM have started a yearly tradition of looking back at the works that most shaped our creative and intellectual development over the years, particularly scholarly works read in college or grad school. Last year we featured pieces that looked back on the following works:
- The American Political Tradition
- Discipline and Punish
- Contested Truths
- The Power Broker
- The Long Twentieth Century
This year, we are privileged to have several contributors weigh in on their biggest influences and best-loved works, beginning with Keith Orejel’s meditation on the groundbreaking essays of Barbara Fields, and followed by Jude Webre on Robert Wiebe’s The Search for Order, Joel Suarez on The Wages of Whiteness, and more.
