1. Paul Starr reviewed The MoveOn Effect, along with Schlozman, Verba, and Brady’s The Unheavenly Chorus and Winters’s Oligarchy in the September 13th issue of The New Republic. It’s a real honor to see my work placed alongside such excellent scholarship.
2. I wrote a chapter on the netroots in the 2010 election for Paul Hrrnson, Chris Deering, and Clyde Wilcox’s just-published book, Interest Groups Unleashed (CQ Press). They gathered a phenomenal collection of authors for this book, I highly recommend it.
3. I have a series of book talks and conference panels beginning this week:
September 19th, 4PM – Eagleton Institute of Politics, Rutgers University
September 20th, 11AM – “Advocacy – What Works, What Doesn’t” panel at SalsaLabs Community Conference, Washington, DC.
