Reading the whole thing

August 05, 2004

So, yesterday I printed out the entire monster and since then I have been reading and scribbling, working to make sure that the four chapters talk to one another.

Chapter one is thin, I know that and have plans for further research. But it does move along nicely.

Chapter two needs its notes fixed and needs a bigger discussion of Sabbatarians. But it moves along nicely.

Chapter three bogs down, and is also the most polished of all the chapters. It is also a very different piece than the others - explaining what benevolent organizations are while the other chapters make arguments about what laws and civil religion meant.

Chapter four put me to sleep. This is a bad sign.

And back to chapter four.
