Has anyone done research on Harvard’s Kennedy School during the 1970s and 80s? Seems like lots of influential policy re: policing and welfare reform was coming out of there.

Yes definite parallels (and I'm sure connections) here! Much of the community development literature I've encountered drew on British colonial examples.

Thanks Stuart! Your work has obviously been central to my thinking on all of this.

Gotta echo : this is an excellent, innovative article about the Ford Foundation. It does at least 2 great things: it brings together the history of development with urban history and it brings together US foreign relations history with carceral state history.

Great new article by . Ford Foundation experts believed the urban crisis of the 1950s/60s in both the US and the global South was due to the inward migration of "backward" people from rural areas

Thank you so much Simon - your PhD thesis was very important for helping me think through the historiographical framing of the article!

My take in on Trump's opposition to vote-by-mail: "the most recent act in a long … historical drama defined by the unremitting commitment to impeding non-white voters”
