  • Arthur Rizer and Lars Trautman with an update on criminal-justice reform in the states
  • Peter Schuck and Rogers Smith (incoming president of the American Political Science Association) on why birthright citizenship is a properly political question
  • Karlyn Bowman on the problems with political polling
  • Scott Yenor on how we think about the family
  • Arnold Kling with a new toolkit for economists
  • James Poulos on great books in a digital age
  • Lee Edwards on the state of the right
  • Jay Cost on civic republicanism
  • Jason Willick on what we can learn from Peter Viereck
  • James Ceaser on how Madison founded the American founding
  • Mary Eberstadt on James Q. Wilson and the social crisis of our time
