The Haberdasher and the Commander



Distinguished Historian Miller  offers lively, well-presented parallel biographies, though the book is superficial in comparison with recent exhaustive works on each man. The author is primarily interested in comparing the experiences of these two men as they rose through the ranks of their chosen professions, and their approaches to government.

  1. Miller's an ethicist as I recall, so it's bound to be a little different. Might be very interesting.

  2. I think so. No other reviews out there yet.
