A final follow-up to the Texas Schoolbook case

Readers of this blog who have been following the case of the Texas Schoolbook Controversy will, I hope, find this Sam Tanenhaus essay to be a good read. I think that Tanenhaus puts the whole thing in perspective. He writes: "this controversy is the latest version of a debate that reaches back many decades and is perhaps essential in a heterogeneous democracy whose identity has long been in flux."

That's a long link and I hope that I got it right.
