It's Monday, What are You Reading? U. S. Grant

It's Monday, What are You Reading? U. S. Grant

This is my fifth entry for this meme, suggested by Sheila@ One Persons Journey Through A World of Books.

I am now reading U. S. Grant: American Hero, American Myth by Joan Waugh. Among other things, this book is a Main Selection of the History Book Club, and a Selection of the Military Book Club and the Book-of-the-Month Club. I have been waiting for a new "unbiased" book on Grant for some time. I believe I have found it in Waugh's book. The first third of the book is a nice summary of his life, including the war and his presidency. The last two thirds, that I am just getting into is a thorough analysis, based on review of primary source materials, of how Grant has been treated by history, historians and the media since that time. I really like what I have seen so far....

Happy Reading! ;-)

  1. Bill,

    Sounds like another great read. Right now, I am reading Sleep it does a family good, by Dr. Archibald Hart. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Won't you stop by my blog today to read about a blogger who needs our help!
