I'll be speaking tonight at Duke, 7pm, Page Auditorium; Q&A session to follow; copies of the book will be for sale.
The N&O previews the speech; here is the response of John Burness to the book:
While we disagree with many of its conclusions, it's not going to serve any good purpose to engage in a point by point rebuttal. It's one interpretation of the history of the past two years. There have been other interpretations, and we assume there will be more.
This line is similar to the reaction in Newsweek, where Burness said, “This book provides one interpretation.” That Duke cannot offer any specific criticisms of the book is revealing.
At noon today, Stuart Taylor will be speaking at the Cato Institute; C-SPAN will cover.
Finally, comments will be slow to appear on the blog today, since I'll be traveling a good portion of the day.
