Bonds of Affection

Unshelved is made possible this week in part by Georgetown University Press, publishers of Bonds of Affection by Matthew S. Holland, which traces the routes of American charity to John Winthrop, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln. I put on a facade of being a pop-culture loving comics reader, and I am, but my hidden secret is that I love history, and especially books like this which frame the modern day in terms of what came before. Everything new is old again
