From Powerline Blog, Steven Hayward listens to Fred Siegel in the two videos below. The first is 8 minutes and the second is 7 minutes long. I can’t think of a better way to spend 15 minutes.
Fred Siegel has written several books on political history. The two I’ve read are The Revolt Against the Masses, How Liberalism Has Undermined the Middle Class; and The Future Once Happened Here, New York, LA, DC and the Fate of America’s Big Cities. I have Prince of the City: Giuliani, New York and the Genius of American Life on my shelf. I’ll read it when I finish the two in front of it.
