KIRKUS REVIEW

The series ends with this, the sixth volume, which starts with the nomination of Harding, and goes up to the Coolidge administration and the aftermath of the Harding administration scandal. The book falls into distinct sections:- the first two thirds is connected narrative, following the events, the personalities, the underlying currents of thought and action during the troubled days of the Harding administration. The last third contains chapters of the trends of literature, drama, popular music, etc. and flashbacks through jottings from his daily record. The new volume sustains the easy, graphic style of the earlier book, and he has a gift for selection. Your market is assuredly everyone who read the earlier books.
