  1. Andrew says:

    Noble's form of intellectual history is more akin to the early work of Van Wyck Brooks and Lewis Mumford than it is to, say, John Higham or his dissertation advisor, Merle Curti. That makes for some irritation if one disagrees (as I do) with the premises from which he starts out, but some moments of sharp insight cutting against one's own readings of the text or historian being dissected.

    It is also quite clear to me that there must be a fairly straightforward link between Noble's work and the critique of American exceptionalism pursued by the New Americanists, such as John Carlos Rowe or Russell Reising or Amy Kaplan or, especially, Donald Pease. I'd have to go back to check the footnotes, but there's certainly a common tone or posture between Noble and that younger generation.
