1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Schmerguls VINE VOICE on August 28, 2005
Format: Hardcover
On January 25, 1989, I read Champ Clark's My Quarter Century of

American Politics with much interest. He refers to similar books by Thomas Hart Benton (Thirty Years View), James G. Blaine (Twenty Years in Congress), and this book by George F. Hoar, which books served Clark as a model for his book. John Sherman also has a memoir on his years, but even Champ Clark says Sherman's is dull. I have now read Hoar's book and found it discursive but with lots of interesting things scattered through its over 900 pages. Incidentally, Hoar says John Sherman did not write the Sherman Anti-Trust Act of 1890 and probably never read it! He relates with care and affection the years of his growing up, and the tremendous contrast between living in the 1820s and 1903--when his book was written. (He died the year after it was published.) He talks a lot about Senators and judges he knew, and nearly all his comments are laudatory, which makes them not too attention-holding. The exception is Ben Butler. He has much bad to say about Ben Butler, though he does name five things about him which he says were praiseworthy. But these things are overwhelmed by the bad things he has to say about him. Since so much of the book lauds folk, it is a pleasant change of pace to read him excoriating somebody! Hoar had wise things to say about the folly of the US conquering the Phillipines, and I found his belief that the US should set a peaceful example of freedom which mankind will be glad to follow pertinent, inasmuch as he added that we should never force even freedom upon unwilling nations at the point of a bayonet or at the cannon's mouth.
