Talk: Lewis Lapham

Lewis Lapham stopped by Google for a conversation with Richard Gingras, Head of News Product. Published four times a year, each issue of Lapham's Quarterly adopts and explores a single theme. In 2008, LQ's first four issues were dedicated to War, Money, Nature, and Education. Each issue is created with an aim to help readers find historical threads from Homer to Queen Elizabeth I to George Patton, from Aesop to Edith Wharton. New essays from writers such as Stanley Fish, Fritz Stern, and Andrew Delbanco are knotted and theme together.
