- Susan Carruthers, author of The Good Occupation: American Soldiers and the Hazards of Peace, wrote in the New York Times about Americans’ mid-twentieth-century fears of a Communist mind-control conspiracy.
- Tommie Shelby and Brandon M. Terry, coeditors of To Shape a New World: Essays on the Political Philosophy of Martin Luther King, Jr., spoke with WBUR’s Meghna Chakrabarti about Dr. King’s radical politics and “the ethics of the oppressed,” and Terry discussed the lesser-known, “real” Dr. King—who spoke out against the Vietnam War, police brutality, and economic injustice—with WGBH’s Callie Crossley.
- Eli Cook, author of The Pricing of Progress: Economic Indicators and the Capitalization of American Life, argued in the Chicago Tribune that Americans are uniquely predisposed to put a price on “everyday life” due to the precedent set by the slave trade, which normalized the setting of prices on human beings.
