Episode 19 - Margaret Levi

Raiders Of The Lost Archive

May 5 2023 • 1 hr 4 mins

The author of Rule and Revenue, In the Interests of Others, Consent, Dissent, and Patriotism, and Analytic Narratives describes some of her lesser-known her early-career work: police ride-alongs in Detroit after the social upheavals of the 1960s, interviewing Jimmy Hoffa, and day-drinking with scary police officers (before they went on duty).  A wide-ranging discussion of triangulating data to tell a compelling story, how and when to alter theories in the face of new data, and numerous inspiring examples of tenacity in the face of adversity dealing with hard-to-access archives.  With generous answers, always more cogent and coherent than the questions, this is truly a can't miss episode.
