A NEW BOOK COMING SOON from scholarly fraud Michael Bellesiles.

Here’s Jim Lindgren’s Yale Law Journal piece on Bellesiles’ fraud. Note that he was stripped of his Bancroft Prize, and lost his tenured position at Emory University, too.

More thoughts from Clayton Cramer: “I’m just amazed. Maybe 1877 is a fine book. But the extent of his exposure from scholars across the spectrum was so overwhelming that the smartest thing he could do is not remind anyone of Arming America. It’s rather like deciding to go straight–but include a copy of the Wanted poster for bank robbery with your resume.”
