Wonderful Crash Course of 20th Century Politics
on April 18, 2017
This was great. Hayward has certainly gone more highbrow than PIG books. But the book was done with great taste. It scores each president on being a Constitutionalists, from Wison (bad grade) through Obama (also bad grade). But they're not alone. Hayward is a bright historian and not a bomb thrower, so the book. I agreed with most of his assessments. Though I didn't agree with finding one of President Ford's redeeming qualities is that he vetoed the Freedom of Information Act. Congress overrode the veto. Overall, very solid history and very solid writing that you won't have to be a history buff or a political junkie like me to devour.
