David Sehat in the AHR

The latest issue of the American Historical Review (116: 4; October 2011) contains a featured review (page 1066) of David Sehat’s The Myth of American Religious Freedom. Sehat is one of the founders of the Society for U.S. Intellectual History, and currently serves on the organization’s executive committee as the officer in charge of the 2012 S-USIH conference. The review, by Mark Douglas McGarvie, is very positive, calling the book a “wonderful intellectual history of the United States addressing a topic of perpetual concern to Americans since the founding.” In the high praise department, Richard Hofstadter is referred to as “one of [Sehat’s] leading predecessors.” Congratulations, David!
