Reviews
Bringing Home the White House is a revelation. The story of midcentury party politics usually focuses on powerful men in smoke-filled rooms. But in this vital new book, Melissa Estes Blair has recovered the remarkable stories of the powerful women who, at a time when the ideal woman stayed at home, transformed the parties and the presidency.--Nicole Hemmer, director of the Carolyn T. and Robert M. Rogers Center for the Study of the Presidency, Vanderbilt University
Melissa Estes Blair writes with confidence, clarity, and great insight about women who worked with varying degrees of success to carve places for professional political women in the RNC and DNC. An important story told with great sensitivity.--Karissa Haugeberg "coeditor of Women's America: Refocusing the Past"
