Has any would-be successor embraced a sitting president’s policies and legacy as closely as Hillary Clinton has? If so, I can’t recall it. The Republicans’ quadrennial tussle over Reagan’s shabby mantle doesn’t count because Reagan is a) dead, and b) stopped being president nearly 30 years ago. It’s smart politics for Clinton to glom onto […]

The first time I encountered the Progressive Librarians Guild (PLG) was nearly 30 years ago. Almost miraculously, PLG has survived from just after the Reagan era through the Clinton and Bush years until Obama. It is still small but manages to publish Progressive Librarian (PL), a journal that combines rigorous scholarship with a strong ideological sentiment.
