about

Among nineteenth-century Americans, few commanded the reverence and respect accorded to Henry Clay of Kentucky. As orator and as Speaker of the House for longer than any man in the century, he wielded great power, a compelling presence in Congress who helped preserve the Union in the antebellum period. Remini portrays both the statesman and the private man, a man whose family life was painfully torn and who burned with ambition for the office he could not reach, the presidency.
Robert V. Remini, professor emeritus of history & the humanities at the University of Illinois at Chicago, won the National Book Award for his three-volume biography of Andrew Jackson. He is the author of numerous books on American history, including "The Battle of New Orleans"& biographies of Henry Clay & Daniel Webster.
