Jeffrey Pasley Announces New Book

I am glad to see that Jeffrey Pasley, professor of history at the University Missouri, has a new book coming out soon.  Today on his Twitter feed he announced that his First Presidential Contest: 1796 and the Founding of American Democracy will be released in May with the University Press of Kansas.

I have never met Jeffrey, but we recently had a good twitter conversation about my post calling for the AHA membership to elect a president who is not employed by a research university. 

I learned a lot from Pasley’s The Tyranny of the Printers: Newspaper Politics in the Early American Republic and I am sure I will learn much from The First Presidential Contest as well.
