critics are raving about the fall’s best nonfiction

“A TARANTINO MOVIE YET TO BE MADE” “Frightening to read… [and] compelling, not least in the way it illustrates how the law of unintended consequences in covert action can work with an almost delirious vengeance.”—ADAM GOPNIK, The New Yorker “IMAGINE HAVING A CUP OF COFFEE WITH JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG” “Chatting about law, the Supreme Court, marriage, family, music, wins and losses. If that seems unlikely to happen, [this book] is the best possible substitute.”—LINDA GREENHOUSE, Pulitzer Prize-winning former Supreme Court correspondent of The New York Times “THIS BOOK IS A REVELATION.” “As fascinating as it is disturbing. You may think you know who Clarence Thomas is, but you don’t know the half of it.”—JACK M. BALKIN, author of Living Originalism “A MASSIVELY IMPRESSIVE WORK” “As enjoyable as it is knowledgeable…. Orlando Figes is an outstanding historian…

Why We Fight War with Iran, writes Kevin Baker, would “make our war in Vietnam look like a walk in the park” [“The Deep State of Dementia,” Easy Chair, September]. But the grave scenario of such a conflict is increasingly probable, and it should be condemned at every opportunity. The media’s ongoing failure to interrogate the Trump Administration’s claims of Iranian aggression—to say nothing of their failure to situate these claims in the context of the administration’s own aggression toward Iran—only brings us closer to the brink. Baker offers the Gulf of Tonkin as the most obvious precedent for our recent confrontations with Iran. It’s true that Kennedy, McNamara, and their “flexible response” strategy created an ideal environment for that administration and its allies to play a more direct role in instigating…

This past spring and summer, political correctness—perhaps inevitably—took a full turn and became a campaign to erase the worst things that dead white men have done in our history. This latest twist in our culture wars was set off not by Republicans or Proud Boys but by the San Francisco school board, social justice warriors all, who managed to convince themselves that the past was so terrible we dare not even look at it. The cause of the brouhaha was Victor Arnautoff’s 1936 Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) murals at San Francisco’s George Washington High School. Arnautoff was just the sort of artist you’d expect a San Francisco school board to love, an immigrant White Russian turned Red. A cavalryman in the tsar’s army, he made a remarkable hegira to California and…
