Prof. Kerry Walters wrote two invited Huffington Post pieces. One was an article based on his new book, Explosion on the Potomac, titled, “An Explosion that Changed the Nation”, about an accident that changed the course of the nation. The other article was, "A Demonology of Chemical Weaponry," arguing that our dread of chemical weapons is a contemporary expression of an ancient and deep-seated fear of inexplicable evil.
Prof. Walters also published four new books this summer: a critical edition of John Locke's Letter Concerning Toleration (Broadview), Explosion on the Potomac: The 1844 Calamity Aboard the USS Princeton (History Press), Lincoln, the Rise of the Republicans, and the Coming of the Civil War (ABC-CLIO/Praeger), and Giving Up god...to Find God: Breaking Free of Idolatry (Orbis).
