Reviews

"A powerful, timely re-evaluation."
--The New Yorker

"Splendid. . . . A must-read. . . . It would be difficult to imagine a biography of any early 20th-century political leader more relevant to the early 21st century than this one."
--The Washington Post Book World

"A superb biography and a challenging reconsideration of Bryan's place in U.S. political history."
--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Instructive, illuminating-engagingly written. . . . Bryan emerges from Kazin's new biography as the founding father of the modern Democratic Party and maybe even of modern American politics."
--The Boston Globe
