In his new essay "The Little Picture," historian Edward Gray considers the compartmentalized state of the history profession and admits, "I have found myself drawn once again to the likes of Tocqueville, particularly the impulse—which he was the first to yield to in any serious way—to ask, 'What does America mean?'"
Read "The Little Picture" by Edward Gray from the July 2006 issue of Common-Place.
