In this chapter, the author talks about how he recognized he had much to learn about the Journal of American History and the practice of American history. He hoped to make that practice more democratic and polled readers about what they wanted. They persuaded him to publish new kinds of essays on what historians outside as well as inside academic institutions and around the world were doing.
