Robert W. Merry
Historian and journalist Robert W. Merry, whose twenty two years at Congressional Quarterly included over a dozen years as CEO, speaks today about the 25th US President. His book, President McKinley: Architect of the American Century (Simon and Schuster), evokes the life of the president who established the U.S. as a global imperial power.
“Reporters, commentators and citizens alike should read Robert Merry's illuminating journey into the past to discover what made our previous presidents succeed or fail. The history is lively; the writing is graceful; the analysis is brilliant."--Doris Kearns Goodwin, writing about Robert Merry’s classic book, Where They Stand.
Robert W. Merry also appears at Folio: A Seattle Athenaeum on Wednesday, November 15th for a lunchtime event.
