KIRKUS REVIEW

A copiously documented biography of John Hay, secretary to Lincoln, attache, business man, novelist and poet, Ambassador to Great Britain, Secretary of State. Written with flashes of humor, and covering the history of America during a period when it was being drawn, against its will, into the vortex of world affairs. An unprejudiced picture of Hay's dual make-up. Not for wide popular sale, but a sound and essential book for those interested in American history and biography.
