Multicultural Review

Multicultural Review ran a short and favorable notice on American Prophet in their April issue. Dennis E. Showalter of Colorado College describes Carey McWilliams as "one of America's major public intellectuals, whose roots in the American cultural and historic experience enabled him to sidestep involvement with the ideology and policy of the Soviet Union that took so many of his liberal contemporaries down dead ends." The last sentence is the least expected: "Richardson's strong case for McWilliams's legacy of public involvement as a counterweight to the solipistic theorizing of today's academic Left is controversial but defensible and merits careful consideration."

Dear Peter Richardson,
I applaud you on your current biography and blog. You have helped me in bettering my understanding of Carey McWilliams and his great contributions, not only in California, but also the United States. Please continue updating your blog so I can stay up to date with your other projects. Thanks again.
