Hey, that's kind of nice.
Just got my new Perspectives on Politics in the mail, and noticed that my work is cited in an article. Nice because I was also cited in the last two journals that showed up: the most recent American Political Science Review and the most recent Political Theory. (Some links may require subscriptions.) And in all three cases by people I don't know or barely know.
Not a big deal. But a nice little salve to wounded pride.
