Viewed by his enemies as an ambitious demagogue and his supporters as a champion of their liberal causes, William Jennings Bryan nevertheless, left an indelible mark on the American landscape. Cherny draws amply upon Bryan's own writings and correspondence to produce a portrait of the lifelong political crusader that, while comparatively short in length, offers a substantial evaluation of his legacy.

This troop of now-grizzled bears - including Claude Passeau, Hank Wyse, Alvin Dark, Don Kessinger, Joe Niekro, Pete LaCock, and slugger Hank Sauer - holds forth on the front office moves, grueling day-game scheduling and sometimes agonizing play of one of baseball's oldest, unluckiest yet most revered franchises.
Ronald Wilson Reagan

I Love You, Ronnie: The Letters of Ronald Reagan to Nancy Reagan I Love You, Ronnie: The Letters of Ronald Reagan to Nancy Reagan by Ronald Reagan, Nancy Reagan
Starting in 1950, shortly after they met, and up through the 1990s, Ronald Reagan wrote letters to his wife, Nancy. In this book, those letters are woven into a portrait of a long and loving marriage, as Nancy Reagan shares not only the letters but also her reflections on them, and on the life that she and Ronald Reagan shared, from courtship, young marriage, and the White House years on through to her life today. This book offers insight into one of America's most famous couples and into the love story they lived. Nancy Reagan comments on the letters, and writes with love and insight about her husband and the many phases of their life together. She describes how they met and fell in love and how their love grew over a long, eventful, and happy marriage, and she recalls the central role that letters, as well as cards and telegrams, played in their lives. The private life of this couple comes alive in this American story

The Bully Pulpit: The Presidential Leadership of Ronald Reagan The Bully Pulpit: The Presidential Leadership of Ronald Reagan by William Ker Muir, Jr.
Ronald Reagan's supporters call him the Great Communicator and say he demonstrated common sense, keen intelligence, and vision as president. His detractors say he was an incompetent manager, lacked the fortitude to make unpleasant decisions, and let his subordinates handle the business of the presidency. More than most presidents, Muir argues, Ronald Reagan set out to change the way the American people thought about events, their country, and themselves--in effect, to create a new public philosophy. This insightful book describes how, through the spoken word, Reagan waged his revolution from the bully pulpit of the White House.
