I enjoyed reading Thomas Fallace’s fine essay connecting Bailyn’s famous critique of our discipline’s history prior to 1960 to several intellectual trends emanating out of postwar consensus liberalism. I think he is correct about all of it. His work adds nuance and particularity to claims I made myself some years ago.
