Praise

"[A] masterful account....Guelzo's prose has an old-fashioned urbanity, slightly pompous but also wry and detached. He has a keen ear for the telling anecdotes and he knows how to step back and let the quotations make his point. The book exudes a cosmopolitan awareness of the distortions and corruptions of everyday politics, but Guelzo never lapses into cynicism. He knows that beneath all the hoopla serious issues were in play." - James Oakes 10/23/2008
