MR. TOAD REDUX

Later today, I will have a few suggestions about things we can all do in the struggle against Trump, but I can never resist the temptation to tout my own books, so …


Forty-six years ago, when I was desperately scrabbling to pay for two full-scale analyses and publishing everything I could lay claim to, I signed a contract to edit a collection of original essays on American politics called 1984 Revisited – Prospects for American Politics.  I rounded up some folks I knew to write essays.  Each author was paid $500, which would be $3000 today – not too shabby.  Todd Gitlin, Gene Mason, Robert Nakamura, Michael Lerner, Ira Katznelson, and Frances Fox Piven stepped up to the plate and I wrote an Introduction.  The book made no impression at all on the world, but the title was great.  Maybe I ought to do another one.
