Stephen HessIn the world of the theatre there are hundreds of books written about great stars. How many books have been written about great stage managers? It's the same on the political stage. Publishers, editors and agents do not encourage striving young authors to do a biography of someone who is unknown to most potential book buyers. Robert Strauss? Blank stare. This is too bad. As Kathryn J. McGarr skillfully shows, Strauss…was a vivid personality when on the stage, and fun to read about. But people like Strauss also have had a unique role in American public life, which is important to understand, and extends McGarr's book beyond one man's story.
