    A reviewer

    This is a well-written and very useful synopsis of the life and deeds of one of the lesser-known U.S. predients, who played a key role in the turbulent years following the American Civil War. The book is especially strong in its frequent use of primary source quotes, many of which make Johnson's character come alive for modern readers. The author makes it clear that although Johnson was a controversial, often narrow-minded, and at times less than competent figure, he was a highly patriotic individual who strongly supported the U.S. Constitution in an era in which some self-serving politicians were willing to subvert that great document and its ideals for their own selfish ends.
