Reviews

"This magnificent biography finally provides what William Henry Seward so justly deserves--a full, terrific and complex portrait of his endlessly fascinating life."--Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of Team of Rivals
"In this fine volume, Walter Stahr has rendered a signal service by resurrecting the life of the often neglected William Henry Seward. His sweeping portrait of the long-standing Secretary of State is always lucid, engaging, scrupulously fair-minded, and deeply researched. This biography stands as a valuable addition to the rich literature of American politics in the mid-nineteenth century."--Ron Chernow, author of Washington: A Life
"Politician, diplomat, raconteur, a figure of controversy and power, Seward has finally found a biographer equal to his importance."--James McPherson, author of Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era
