Book note: The Founders at Home

Review copy requested: The Founders at Home: The Building of America, 1735-1817, by Myron Magnet. Myron was my editor back when (nearly two decades ago) I wrote for City Journal about the New York waterfront, the New York State Legislature and other subjects. He's a demanding editor but one who often got good results from writers, and I expect his own writing will show similar exactingness. Before I knew him in the City Journal capacity, I wrote about him and his book The Dream and the Nightmare for Insight magazine: "A Magnet to Lift the Poor."

UPDATE 11/17/13: More here.
