A Godly Hero

For anyone interested in political history generally, or in contemporary debates about "populism," Michael Kazin's new biography of William Jennings Bryan, A Godly Hero, is essential reading. It's being officially released tomorrow, and if this plenary endorsement doesn't encourage you to check it out, here's a sneak preview of my review of the book, which appears in the March issue of The Washington Monthly. If you're smart enough to be a subscriber to TWM, you probably got this issue in the mail today, or will momentarily, with lots of stuff you can't get online.
