A book of depth and authority. It has the strength of immense research, an understanding of the manifold issues that engaged the mind and spirit of a figure who was something of a Renaissance man, and a sympathetic but not worshipful appreciation of that figure. The human personality and the intellectual issues—fighting issues for Chafee, who never lost sight of their human consequences—come through vividly.—Paul Freund
