Top 10 best new, biography movies 2018 - list
Published in 2007, shortly after Fords death, this 160-page biography appears comprehensive but not terribly detailed. Brinkley is a shredder respected author and history professor so i am hopeful this biography is worth the relatively minor business investment of time it requires. i am wrapping up with. Ambition, Pragmatism, and Party: a political biography of Gerald. Ford by Scott kaufman. Published in 2017, this is the most recent comprehensive biography of Ford. But with just 349 pages of text I cannot help but wonder whether this book enhances our understanding of Ford and what, if anything, kaufman reveals that is not already covered by cannon (whose An Honorable life is one-third longer than this biography).
So the question i am left to ponder is whether no biographer has ever been fully committed to studying, analyzing and revealing Gerald Fordor whether there is just not that much about Ford to be studied, analyzed and revealed? time and Chance: Gerald Fords Appointment with History by james Cannon was published strong in 1994 (a dozen years before ford died) and covers its subjects life up through his unsuccessful campaign for the presidency in 1976. Written by a journalist and Washington insider and a valued member of the ford administration cannons perspective should be fascinating. Ford: An Honorable life by james Cannon was published in 2013 and seems not to be a sequel to time and Chance as much as a second crack by this author at covering Fords life. In this incarnation, however, there seems to be less focus on his early life, more detail on his presidency, and a more complete perspective on his retirement years. Next Im reading, the Presidency of Gerald. Ford by john Robert Greene, a well-regarded if not particularly well-known historian. This is widely considered the definitive scholarly study of Fords presidency and given the lack of Ford-related biographies it is almost certainly an essential if not entertaining read. Ford by douglas Brinkley is a member of The American Presidents series.
office. Even a larger group of people will recall that Ford was the president who pardoned Richard Nixon. (He remains the only. President to pardon a former president.). But beyond those two basic facts, what do any of us really know about the thirty-eighth president (born Leslie lynch King.)? Ford and his legacy seem to be in the witness protection program. This is likely due, in part, to the fact he was president fewer days than anyone else in history ignoring those who died in office. And no presidential biographer of Chernows or McCulloughs or jean Edward Smiths popular prominence has attempted to capture and distill his life and legacy.
