Cover of the Rolling Stone

This is long overdue and I don’t know what was going on in May that I missed it, but I am sending my props out to Princeton historian Sean Wilentz who made the cover of Rolling Stone with his article: The Worst President in History?

It was an interesting article. He touches a little on the difficulty in ranking administrations, especially since the nature of the office itself has totally transformed since its inception.

But man alive, that guy is a productive historian. His book, The Kingdom of Matthias: A Story of Sex and Salvation in 19th Century America (with Paul E. Johnson) was amazing. It is one of the reasons I became interested in microhistory.
