Winter 2018 Issue of American Political Thought Released


The American Political Thought journal released its Winter 2018 issue, available to read online. In 2012, the Jack Miller Center and University of Chicago Press launched American Political Thought to provide a scholarly outlet for JMC fellows and all others with research in American political ideas. Since its inception, 19 issues of American Political Thought have been published, all of which feature leading scholarship in American political philosophy. Notre Dame Professor Michael Zuckert serves as the editor.

The current issue features an article by JMC fellow James M. Patterson titled, “A Covenant of the Heart: Martin Luther King Jr., Civil Disobedience, and the Beloved Community.” This issue also contains a review of the book John Adams and the Fear of American Oligarchy by Luke Mayville, a current JMC postdoctoral fellow. Also published in this issue is a review of JMC fellow John G. Grove’s book, John C. Calhoun’s Theory of Republicanism. Sarah L. Houser, another JMC fellow, also wrote a book review analyzing Jan-Werner Müller’s What Is Populism?
