This new biography of Rutherford B. Hayes shows him as a leader of the Reconstruction era, whose contested election eerily parallels the election debacle of 2000.
From the Publisher:
A fresh perspective on the president who officially ended the Reconstruction charts the career of this extremely well-educated chief executive across one of the most important eras in American history.
Annotation:
This biography of the 19th President tells of his life and his one-term presidency, which was marked by a contested election (which fell to him through a vote in Congress), the weakening of Reconstruction, and the reform of the civil service.
Author Bio
Arthur M. Schlesinger
The son of esteemed historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Schlesinger, Jr. went to Harvard University, where he got his B. A. in 1938. An early work, THE AGE OF JACKSON, won the Pulitzer Prize in history in 1946. As a result, he was offered a position at Harvard. He spent over 30 years on his three-volume study, THE AGE OF ROOSEVELT. A democrat and a liberal, Schlesinger was a founder of the Americans for Democratic Action and was a supporter of Adlai Stevenson. Schlesinger was a close family confidante of the Kennedys, and served as advisor to JFK. He won a Pulitzer Prize for his biography of Kennedy's term in office, A THOUSAND DAYS. In the '70s, he wrote a very laudatory biography, ROBERT KENNEDY & HIS TIMES. Schlesinger has been a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and was elected to the prestigious American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. He has been on the faculty of The Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
