My son, Professor Tobias Barrington Wolff, has just published an extraordinarily interesting article, which I was privileged to read in manuscript, as it were, when he completed it. It is called "Civil Rights Reform and the Body," and can be accessed by cutting and pasting this link:
What makes the essay so interesting, to my way of thinking, is his ability to bring into fruitful conjunction materials from a diversity of academic fields [I like to believe that he got a little bit of this from me, but then, as a father, I of course take credit for what my sons do.] In addition to his groundbreaking work on LGBT legal rights, Tobias is the leading young Civil Proceduralist in the academic legal community.
Quite the most fascinating part of the essay is the section in which he talks about the early stages of train travel in America. That is worth the price of the entire article all by itself.
