A boomlet in Coolidge books?

2013 is shaping up to be a good year for the reputation of the man some have called America’s most underrated, if not actually forgotten, president. Just like Amity Shlaes’ long awaited new biography, writer Charles C. Johnson’s new book on why Coolidge is still significant comes out a little too late for Christmas… but you can pre-order and gift-wrap the voucher!

Reader David W alerts me to the upcoming (presumably also in 2013) new book by Coolidge scholar David Pietrusza. Looks like I really need to add a new Coolidge shelf to my bookcase!

  1. Thanks for the tip.   Just finished “City of Scoundrels”. Most enjoyable! I didn’t know there was an ‘aviation accident’ in downtown Chicago.   Not sure the events really define modern Chicago, but it certainly helps you to understand the fault lines, and reminds us that the city always was corrupt. The story of the 1920 convention, though, is very illuminating. Indeed, two guys couldn’t get along – and thereby changed history.   Merry Christmas!   RMM
