Part Two Of Two Parts

In this, the last of his prize-winning series on American presidential politics, Theodore H. White explains the transformation of American politics over the past 25 years.

White sets the stage by describing the forces molding American politics...from television to the Great Inflation. He revisits elections, from Dwight D. Eisenhower to Ronald Reagan, and suggests how future contests might develop. He argues that events shape the man rather than vice versa: "I have learned that such men are cast up by events and forces larger than individuals."

"A clear and uncluttered look at the tumultuous decades in which we find ourselves." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)
