Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 August #1
    Historian Banner presents here essays by notable historians about instances of presidential misconduct as well as misdeeds by members of each presidential administration, with no president exempt from close examination, even the chaste George Washington. Pages devoted to presidents Grant and Nixon naturally take up primacy of space in this rigorous account, which serves better as a reference source than a cover-to-cover read. The primary lesson learned here is that hints of corruption spring up both where anticipated as well as where least expected. This book is an updated version of a report commissioned in 1974 for the House Committee on the Judiciary. Its reissue and revision make it very suitable for most history and current-events collections. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
