Director Alan Taylor had a unique challenge making the Sopranos prequel film The Many Saints of Newark: He had to make a film that worked for the millions of Sopranos fans worldwide, and for people who may never have seen a frame of the HBO series. He talked with us about his first days working for Sopranos mastermind David Chase, Ray Liotta's very Sopranos performance, and the "fucking jaw-dropping" opening of The Many Saints of Newark.This one is filled with spoilers.Photo: Alessandro Nivola, Michael Gandolfini and Alan Taylor on the set of The Many Saints of Newark.

Episode 74: Alan Taylor

The World in Time / Lapham’s Quarterly

“I think we do ourselves a disservice,” Pulitzer Prize–winning historian Alan Taylor says on the latest episode of The World in Time, speaking about his book American Republics: A Continental History of the United States, 1783–1850, “if we romanticize the origins of United States and cast it as some sort of political utopia from which we have fallen. I think we’d do a lot better if we’d see that division and disagreement have been in place in the United States from the start.”Lewis H. Lapham speaks with Alan Taylor, author of American Republics: A Continental History of the United States, 1783–1850.Thanks to our generous donors.

The Age of Jackson Podcast

From a Pulitzer Prize–winning historian, the powerful story of a fragile nation as it expands across a contested continent.In this beautifully written history of America’s formative period, a preeminent historian upends the traditional story of a young nation confidently marching to its continent-spanning destiny. The newly constituted United States actually emerged as a fragile, internally divided union of states contending still with European empires and other independent republics on the North American continent. Native peoples sought to defend their homelands from the flood of American settlers through strategic alliances with the other continental powers. The system of American slavery grew increasingly powerful and expansive, its vigorous internal trade in Black Americans separating parents and children, husbands and wives. Bitter party divisions pitted elites favoring strong government against those, like Andrew Jackson, espousing a democratic populism for white men. Violence was both routine and organized: the United States invaded Canada, Florida, Texas, and much of Mexico, and forcibly removed most of the Native peoples living east of the Mississippi. At the end of the period the United States, its conquered territory reaching the Pacific, remained internally divided, with sectional animosities over slavery growing more intense.Taylor’s elegant history of this tumultuous period offers indelible miniatures of key characters from Frederick Douglass and Sojourner Truth to Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Margaret Fuller. It captures the high-stakes political drama as Jackson and Adams, Clay, Calhoun, and Webster contend over slavery, the economy, Indian removal, and national expansion. A ground-level account of American industrialization conveys the everyday lives of factory workers and immigrant families. And the immersive narrative puts us on the streets of Port-au-Prince, Mexico City, Quebec, and the Cherokee capital, New Echota.Absorbing and chilling, American Republics illuminates the continuities between our own social and political divisions and the events of this formative period.-Alan Taylor has twice won the Pulitzer Prize in History, most recently for The Internal Enemy, also a National Book Award finalist. He is Thomas Jefferson Foundation Professor of History at University of Virginia, and lives in Charlottesville.

Alan Taylor on American Republics: A Continental History of the United States, 1783-1850

Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI Radio in New York

(5/17/21) After reading two-time Pulitzer Prize winning historian Alan Taylor’s new book American Republics: A Continental History of the United States, 1783-1850 it is not understand why this formative period in the country’s history is often left out of high school history classes. Native peoples sought to defend their homelands from the flood of American settlers through strategic alliances with the other continental powers before falling to massive relocation efforts and genocide at the hands of the US government. While the practice of slavery continued to grow, Congress offered no legal recourse for enslaved people. Join us for a critical look at a period in American history with strong echoes in the present in this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI.
