Editorial Reviews

Review

“To some historians, Professor Burns is a fine political scientist. To some political scientists he is a fine historian. In fact, he is the best of both disciplines . . .” —The Washington Post
 
“Over the past half century, James MacGregor Burns has emerged as America’s wise man on the interplay between politics and leadership.” —David Gergen, CNN Senior Political Analyst and former presidential advisor to Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton
 

About the Author

James MacGregor Burns (b. 1918) is a bestselling American historian and political scientist whose work has earned both the National Book Award and a Pulitzer Prize. Born in Boston, Burns fell in love with politics and history at an early age. He earned his BA at Williams College, where he returned to teach history and political science after obtaining his PhD at Harvard and serving in World War II. Burns’s two-volume biography of Franklin Roosevelt is considered the definitive examination of the politician’s rise to power, and his groundbreaking writing on the subject of political leadership has influenced scholars for decades. He currently serves as the Woodrow Wilson Professor of Government Emeritus at Williams College and as Distinguished Leadership Scholar at the University of Maryland.
