Pro-or-con, I have found most takes on American Exceptionalism rather tiresome.  Especially over the last few years.  Our Jim shows you here, (the correct link) however, why it matters and is anything but a tiresome subject.  More discussion in the post below.

Like Jim’s best work, you learn lots about American history and the relevant fields of academic inquiry, as he unfolds his argument. Bravo!

And congrats to the American Political Thought journal on its first issue!
