Editorial Reviews

"In this concise and well-written biography Robert V. Remini has a more ambitious objective than merely recounting the life of a famous man.He portrays the President not as a symbol of the age nor a personification of proletarian striving, but as a shrewd and able politician, a pioneer in using the office of the presidency for both national and narrowly partisan purposes.His account is persuasive and well documented."
