One of the best pieces ever published in the Weekly Standard was a book review by Alvin Felzenberg of a biography of William Lloyd Garrison. The review recounts in brilliant, inspiring detail the role of the Republican Party in advancing the equal rights of black citizens. You might say that it’s a true history of the subject, making allowance for its brevity and its focus on Lincon’s contemporary rather than on Lincoln himself.
This week the Standard dug into its archives and posted the piece on its Web site. For those, like me, in need of some kind of anger managment therapy in connection with the Lott fiasco, we proudly present Alvin Felzenberg’s “Race and Republicans.” Rx: Print it out and read it at your leisure. Repeat as needed.
