BOOKS FOR THE THOUGHTFUL CONSERVATIVE
“The forgotten classic of presidential writing”
—Craig Fehrman, author of Author in Chief
Ronald Reagan called Calvin Coolidge “one of our most underrated presidents.” Coolidge’s remarkable autobiography has also suffered from unjust neglect.
No more. Amity Shlaes, author of the magisterial biography Coolidge, makes The Autobiography of Calvin Coolidge accessible to a new generation of readers. She and Coolidge Foundation president Matthew Denhart provide crucial context for understanding Silent Cal’s strengths.
This expanded and annotated work is the definitive edition of one of the finest presidential memoirs ever written.
“Calvin Coolidge was an astute president, and his memoir is an underappreciated account of what it’s truly like to preside at the pinnacle. This new edition of his autobiography—with his modesty, decorum, and steadfastness—offers us a resonant contrast to our own time.”
—Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize–winning presidential historian
