What We’re Reading: July 3, 2008 Edition

One hundred years ago yesterday Thurgood Marshall was born, so we start off this week’s “What We’re Reading,” with a post about this centennial from the Legal History Blog. Then, don’t forget that nominations for the John W. Kluge Prize will be accepted until July 15. We also link to a recently discovered speech by Gandhi, the latest History Carnival at Progressive Historians, a debate on Iraqi Baath Party documents, and the blog China Beat, which has recently produced a number of posts on Jonathan Spence. Three links are particularly newsworthy (a decolonization lecture, the release of Rosenberg trial records, and the recently appointed PIASA president), while we also point to number of excellent resources (copyright renewal records, Second Amendment Research Center, and a list of past female presidential candidates).
