Editorial Reviews


"Ambar identifies the origins of the expanded twentieth-century presidency in late nineteenth-century gubernatorial leadership. This is the first effort I know of that undertakes a systematic examination of the relationships between gubernatorial politics and the emergence of presidential activism in the Progressive Era and after."—Bruce Miroff, University at Albany-SUNY

His first work of historical fiction ("The Frenchman and the Stranger") appeared in Seattle's Monarch Review.
