I suppose Arthur Schlesinger will always be regarded as FDR's most important biographer as will Robert Caro of Lyndon Johnson. But Robert Remini's profiles of Andrew Jackson, Henry Clay and Daviel Webster should be required reading for all students trying to get a feel for pre-Civil War America.Was this review helpful?

The writing is lush and warm, bringing alive characters such as the above who you just can't help but like.
In this case, Webster comes across as an original thinker, an incredibly captivating speaker--even better than Obama?--and all-around fun guy who loved to make money and drink wine.
Remini is a fantastic writer and historian. Bravo.
