Editorial Reviews

Review

"A painstaking and . . . admiring portrait of a more complex and compelling political figure than the caricature his detractors draw....Humphrey missed the ultimate prize in American politics, but, aside from Vietnam, he was on the right side of history on most issues."—Edward Kosner, The Wall Street Journal

"Thorough and sharply balanced."—Gene Seymour, Bookforum  

"A new (and best-yet) Humphrey biography [that] . . . provides a well-researched and readable rendering of a life that bore much good fruit for this country."—Lori Sturdevant, Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"Offner’s assessment is balanced, affording detailed insight into Humphrey’s lifetime of public service. Recommended for all levels; excellent undergraduate outside reading."—J. H. O'Donnell III, Choice

"A thorough and sharply balanced account of Humphrey’s life."—Gene Seymour, Bookforum

"An insightful and revelatory biography. . . . This complete history of the political career of Hubert Humphrey and his key roles in American policy, domestically and internationally, sheds new light on the man, the era, and a more socially conscious time."—Colin Harrington, Berkshire Eagle

“An outstanding account of the life and accomplishments of a man who was my friend and my hero. This book captures Hubert Humphrey’s passion and unwavering commitment to our nation’s highest ideals.”—President Jimmy Carter

"He devoted his life to public service; he was the first major politician of either party to champion the civil rights movement; he was an enormously effective lawmaker who understood compromise; he brought joy and integrity to American democracy. Why isn't Hubert Humphrey better remembered? With this excellent, thorough, readable biography by Arnold Offner, maybe he will be."—Evan Thomas, author of Robert Kennedy: His Life, Ike's Bluff: President Eisenhower's Secret Battle to Save the World, and Being Nixon: A Man Divided

“Arnold Offner’s riveting account of the life and leadership of Hubert Humphrey shows us the man and legislator who fought to make the United States a more liberal and humane society and leader of a free and peaceful world order. We miss this ‘conscience of the country’ more than ever now.”—Walter F. Mondale

“Well written and exhaustively researched, this is the definitive biography of Hubert Humphrey.”—Irwin F. Gellman, author of The President and The Apprentice: Eisenhower and Nixon, 1952–1961

“Hubert Humphrey was one of the twentieth century's political giants. In this gracefully written, insightful biography, Arnold Offner has captured the essence of the man and his times.“—Randall B. Woods, author of LBJ:Architect of American Ambition

About the Author

Arnold A. Offner is Cornelia F. Hugel Professor of History Emeritus at Lafayette College. His previous books include Another Such Victory: President Truman and the Cold War, 1945–1953, and American Appeasement: United States Foreign Policy and Germany, 1933–1938.
