Lapham's Quarterly: Scandal


This product is currently sold out.

edited by Lewis Lapham


Lapham’s Quarterly embodies the belief that history is the root of all education, scientific and literary as well as political and economic. Each issue addresses a topic of current interest and concern—war, religion, money, medicine, nature, crime—by bringing up to the microphone of the present the advice and counsel of the past.

This issue includes original essays by Jack Beatty, Eric Jager, Nancy Lemann, and Ron Rosenbaum; Voices in Time contributions by Simone de Beauvoir, Anton Chekhov, Janet Flanner, Héloïse, Onyinye Ihezukwu, Petronius, W.T. Stead, Anthony Trollope, Mario Vargas Llosa, Tennessee Williams, and others; and art by Honoré Daumier, William Hogarth, and others.
