It looks like there’s a lot of reader interest in a Wonkblog book club, which is excellent. So let’s get the first one underway!
Here’s how this will work: We’re all planning to read the book (Ezra, Sarah, Dylan, Neil, and me), and every other week, we’ll put up a post with some thoughts on the section we’re reading and then have a discussion in comments. We may try to invite a few special guests to join us, too.
To make reading easier, we’ll split the 458-page book up into four sections:
Friday, May 10. Part 1, “Fight Against Fear.” pp .1-102.
Friday, May 24. Part 2, “Southern Cage.” pp. 103-196.
Friday, June 7. Part 3, “Emergency.” pp. 197-337.
Friday, June 21. Part 4, “Democracy’s Price” and Epilogue. 337-459.
We’ll plan to put up a discussion post on each of those Fridays. If this schedule turns out to be too quick or too slow for people, we can adjust for future book clubs. But let’s stick with this for now.
Happy reading, all.
