A Conversation with Conor Freidersdorf

Email Email Print

The Atlantic’s Conor Friedersdorf joined my on Thursday’s program to discuss what makes a “good and important book” generally and Mark Levin’s Ameritopia specifically.

The transcript is here.

My reactions are in my new column.

My point in devoting an hour to the topic was to underscore that while it ought not to be difficult to define “a good and important book,” that standard has to be in place before any particular book is dismissed as too conservative or too lefty. I thought Conor’s criticisms of Mark’s book were simply not based on the book but on his dislike of Mark’s radio program, positions and style.

Judge for yourself if Friedersdorf has been fair to Levin, but the case for Ameritopia being a very good book about a very important debate –the debate that in fact dominated the arguments in the Supreme Court this week– is very, very strong.
