"This is a positive and controversial book-one that restores much of the luster to Theodore Roosevelt's reputation as a man, as President, and as a reformer and Progressive. Interpreting TR's career from the point of view of what was politically possible rather than theoretically desirable, the author shows how Roosevelt-as a young assemblyman in the New York Legislature, as an uncorruptible commissioner of the civil service and later of the police, and finally as governor and President-repeatedly forced the leaders of the Republican Old Guard to compromise their opposition to his social and economic views...It is a many-faceted book as TR was a many-faceted man. Mr. Harbaugh writes with energy and understanding to make this unusually complete picture of a man's character and deeds." Excellent copy: spine square/TINY bit of fading at heel, back board has a little VERY faint marking, previous owner's signature (partially blacked-out) on front fixed endpaper/pages very faintly toned else the book is as new with NO markings throughout. The dj is price-clipped, spine has minor fading/a little bumping at head/heel with a couple TINY tears and one TINY chip, one TINY chip at lower edge of front/faint scratching and one VERY small "chip-hole" on back. Otherwise it's in excellent condition, also, and attractive. NOT an ex-library, NOT a book club, NOT a remainder. Near Fine in Very Good+ to Near Fine dj.
