After Words with Michael Austin
Professor Michael Austin talked about his book, That’s Not What They Meant!: Reclaiming the Founding Fathers from America’s Right Wing, in which he analyzes dozens of speeches, books and articles by conservative commentators to expose what he called the “deep historical flaws in their use of America’s founding history.” He also examined the founders' quotes in context to present what he believed was a more accurate picture of their meaning. He discussed his findings with David Fontana. close
