Clearly written, based on meticulous research, Lawrence Levine’s book is the most judicious study ever written on William Jennings Bryan.—William E. Leuchtenburg, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

I read Defender of the Faith with growing excitement and admiration—excitement from the wealth of new material about Bryan in his later phase, and admiration at the author’s understanding, sympathy, and objectivity. This book will compel a major reevaluation of the later, tragic phase of Bryan’s career.—Arthur S. Link, Princeton University

What’s more, their responses include book recommendations sure to help you breeze through the sunny season—from our own library as well as those of fellow university presses.
