Joe Mathews on Carey McWilliams


It's a double serving of McWilliams today in the Los Angeles Times. I touch on him in my review of the Mary Austin bio, and an article by Joe Mathews--New America Foundation fellow and former Times scribe--puts the state's current fiscal crisis in historical perspective by reading it against McWilliams's California: The Great Exception (1949). Very nicely done.

Peter! Long time no talk! Forgot to forward you an article I did last month on the Californio "bandit" Juan Flores:

In it, I quote Carey but also take him to task for once!
