Roosevelt to Reagan
Roosevelt to Reagan
By Hedley Donovan
Bessie/Harper, 1985, 332 pp

This is a perceptive, witty and informal commentary by a journalist who was editor-in-chief of Time, Inc. for 15 years and a senior adviser to President Carter for 12 months. The chapters on Carter's personality and on events in the White House during 1979-80, comprising a third of the book, are especially good.
