Welcome Eric Rauchway

by Henry on October 18, 2012

Eric Rauchway, historian at UC Davis, and co-founder of The Edge of the American West is joining Crooked Timber as a blogger. He’s been a guest blogger for us in the past, and is, I suspect, pretty well known to most CT readers. We’re very happy to have him as part of the group.

Does this mean that CT now officially endorses Lincoln as second-best?

It’ll be good to see you over here, Eric. Hope TEotAW is alright.

Hi Eric! I wasn’t going to show, but I thought it might be politic to ask you if you want me commenting in your threads here. This sorta puts the onus on me.

It’s a clean slate, bob. Hope. Change.

Was this a free-agent signing, or a trade? If the later, was it for prospects, or is one of the regulars moving to Eric’s old place? (I assume that w/ Holbo’s salary and injury history, he’s immovable, but what about the others?)

Congrats, Eric! CT is beginning to remind me of this.

Eric, I just wanted to tell you that although I was a history major in college and even managed to get an M.A. (on the way to dropping out of a PhD program), I really did not understand the economic aspects of the Depression at all until I began reading your posts at EotAW, which led to me to buy your informative little book, The Great Depression and the New Deal: A Very Short Introduction — many thanks for the education.

Not only is it an awesome addition in its own right, it’s also a brilliant flanking maneuver in the ongoing CT vs. LG&M blog wars. Comment #8 shows they don’t suspect a thing.

The people (and Lincoln) want ari.

Is SEK a free agent?

May we expect Muppets, or are they barred by a non-compete agreement with EOTAW?

Let me be the first to say: Your opinions are wrong.

So, is there going to be a sequel to Banana Republican?
