I read Levin’s book Rediscovering Americanism. I am in the process of re-reading it. It is a scholarly work with fair even-handed analysis. The first half of the book is some tough reading (at least to me) because it is delving into the written words of Rousseau, Hegel, Marx etc. Levin then provides a history of progressivism which IMO is a nomenclature which couches the philosophy and goals of these individuals and their followers, in a term that is deceptive implying something good. I know he didn’t coin the phrase and that he is actually using their vocabulary and then providing the information, history of what it actually is. His final analysis and conclusion are correct IMO. Rediscovering Americanism… is a great work and one that everyone should read.
