    Joel Silbey: Reminiscences
    Silbey, Joel; Altschuler, Glenn; LaFeber, Walter (Internet-First University Press, 2019-06-11)
    Walter LaFeber and Glenn Altschuler remember Joel Silbey, their Cornell colleague and friend. After reviewing his formative years in Brooklyn and his graduate training at the University of Iowa, they discuss Joel’s scholarly career (including his use of quantitative methods and his important work on the Civil War “synthesis” and “the partisan imperative” in nineteenth century American politics) and his extraordinary commitment to teaching undergraduates and alumni.
