However, what disturbed me a bit while reading was that so many names seemed to be misspelled. I did not keep track systematically, but a quick look through the index reveals entries for "William Jennings Bryant" (and others for "Bryan"), Daniel J. Boorstein (the historian), Henry Morganthau, Shuyler Colfax, general Phillip Schulyer (two errors in one name) and Carl Ichan. The law firm of "Cravath, de Gersdorff, Swaine and Wood" is called "Cravath, de Gerdsdorf, Swaine and Wood" on page 454. No doubt someone with a more expert knowledge of American history would find more errors.
The editor and/or proofreader should probably share the blame with the author, but this unfortunate impression of carelessness could and should have been avoided.
