William F. Buckley by Jeremy Lott
I received this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers to read and review on Booksneeze. The opinions are my own.
This is a very interesting book about William F. Buckley (1925-2008) and portions of his life. It has politics, religion, magazines, history and the United States of America among other interesting facts that surrounded the life of Buckley. The contacts this man had in his lifetime were a range of people and their beliefs; some very controversial. His family and religion (Roman Catholic) were a major part of his life as well as his magazine (The National Review), his TV show (Firing Line on PBS) and political beliefs.
There are many political names in this book: The Kennedys, President Richard Nixon, President Gerald Ford and other political figures that helped make history. I had forgotten that President Nixon was a Quaker and it was just mentioned on FOX the other day.
The book is a small paperback that holds a wealth of information. A good book for a discussion group and especially during an election year.
