"A welcome addition to a distinguished series and a delight to read. Robert Ferrell combines a persuasive portrait of Coolidge with a judicious assessment of his administration's performance and shrewd commentary on the polity, economy, society, and international outlook over which he presided. Ferrell underscores aspects of Coolidge's ambition, political savvy, and sense of service long obscured by historical caricature. This book can be read with interest and profit by anyone seeking a better understanding of a presidency condemned or dismissed in progressive historiography and idealized in conservative revisionism."—Ellis W. Hawley, author of The New Deal and the Problem of Monopoly
Robert H. Ferrell is professor of history at Indiana University and the author of numerous other books, including American Diplomacy: A History and Harry S. Truman: A Life.
