Description
In this sweeping tale of America at the turn of the 20th century, longtime foreign correspondent Scott Miller examines the forces that put President William McKinley and anarchist Leon Czolgosz on a collision course in 1901. Under its popular Republican commander-in-chief, the United States was undergoing an uneasy transition from a simple agrarian society to an industrial powerhouse, spreading influence overseas by force of arms. But Czolgosz, like many immigrants, was on the losing end of the economic changes taking place, and came to despise a government dedicated to making the rich richer. Miller's fascinating snapshot of the era depicts two men who each believed they were on the right and honorable path.

"Even without the intrinsic draw of the 1901 presidential assassination that shapes its pages, Scott Miller's The President and the Assassin [is] absorbing reading.... What makes the book compelling is [that] so many circumstances and events of the earlier time have parallels in our own."Oregonian
