Matt Cavagrotti is the host of a new Zero Books series with the straight forward title "The History of the American Left." The first episode features a conversation with Postdoctoral Fellow James Vaughn. Vaughn taught at the University of Texas at Austin and held a postdoctoral fellowship at Yale University. His first book, The Politics of Empire at the Accession of George III (Yale, 2019), provides a revisionist account of British imperial expansion and politics during the eighteenth century. Another book, The East India Company and the English Revolution, c. 1640–1714 (Primus), will be out next year.
