either Mr. Wilentz or his editor.

Do both!

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Yeah, using "The Democracy" to refer to the Democratic Party is period, but it became seriously annoying.

Colleen Browne The democracy was the way the party was referred to- particularly by it's opponents. Strange you would blame Wilenz for that.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I am well aware of that, and I don't blame him for it - but used consistently for over 800 pages it got very annoying.
