The Claremont Review of Books Summer 2023 Issue is now online.
In the new Summer 2023 issue of the Claremont Review of Books, Christopher Caldwell and William Voegeli each reflect on why affirmative action has been so hard to dismantle despite consistent popular opposition to it and now a new Supreme Court victory. Glenn Ellmers calls for civic accountability in the wake of the failed responses to the COVID pandemic and looks at where “following the science” may lead us. Michael Anton carefully considers what Patrick Deneen gets right in his new book, Regime Change: Toward a Postliberal Future. And Martha Bayles explores the effects of artificial intelligence on Hollywood and beyond.
Our latest issue also features Hadley Arkes on the aftermath of the Dobbs decision and the confusions of conservative jurisprudence, David P. Goldman on multiculturalism and national identity, Richard Samuelson on John Quincy Adams’s foreign policy, and Christopher Flannery on President James A. Garfield’s distinctively American radicalism, as well as Algis Valiunas on T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land, Allen C. Guelzo on the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams, and Douglas A. Jeffrey on baseball writer Roger Angell.
