More Coolidge

Jonah—Re Coolidge, although it is not a biography per se, one should not miss Coolidge and the Historians by my late friend, Tom Silver, former president of the Claremont Institute. He does a masterful job of showing how liberal historians successfully slandered a remarkable man and president. Coolidge was the last president to write his own speeches. One of my favorite lines from the book (from memory) is his description of Coolidge translating Dante for pleasure. “The mind boggles,” Tom wrote, “at the image of Richard Nixon hunched over a copy of The Divine Comedy.”

Mackubin Thomas Owens — Mr. Owens is the editor of Orbis and the author of U.S. Civil–Military Relations after 9/11: Renegotiating the Civil–Military Bargain.
