Two Penn Press authors were favorably reviewed in major publications this past weekend.
Ross Douthat praised Steven P. Miller in yesterday's New York Times Sunday Book Review. Douthat wrote:
…it’s a credit to Steven P. Miller that his "Billy Graham and the Rise of the Republican South," a study of the evangelist’s relationship to the cause of civil rights on the one hand and the cause of conservatism on the other, does justice to the tensions and complexities involved — for Graham, for the South and for the country.
In a review in The New Republic online, G. W. Bowersock calls Goran Blix's From Paris to Pompeii: French Romanticism and the Cultural Politics of Archaeology "a fascinating new book on the impact of Herculaneum and Pompeii upon European views on antiquity."
