Review

“History buffs looking for reassurance that American democracy can survive Trumpism will find it here.” -- Publishers Weekly

“Informed and passionate.” -- Kirkus Reviews

"Engaging....the prolific biographer [Dallek] posits a provocative thesis—that the transgressions and weaknesses of even our greatest chief executives set precedents of thought and action that led eventually to the political rise of Donald Trump." -- Wall Street Journal

“Anyone who wonders, when confronted with the latest White House shenanigans, “How did we get here?” will enjoy Robert Dallek’s new book.... And there could be no better guide to answering it than this accomplished and deeply knowledgeable presidential historian…. Dallek delivers engaging chapters on the major presidents, rich with telling anecdotes and well-chosen quotations…. “How did we get here?” is indeed the right question. Yet only the passage of time and a far-reaching analysis of the many factors that contributed will answer it. Thankfully Dallek has opened the inquiry.” -- Washington Post --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
