A Century Turns by William J. Bennett is an interesting adaptation of history by this renowned historian. As he notes in the introduction he lived this period of history. It is interesting to see how the political machine has changed over the past 20 years. Along with that the way the politicians have communicated with the nation has evolved as well. The book is well annotated with 45 pages of references in the back. Footnote space in the book adds his eye witness stories of the time. It is clear to see who have been our strong leaders in light of what the nation and world has challenged them. It is a difficult book to read if your political viewpoint differs from the author. The book is worth the purchase for the three dozen photographs included. In a few pages there is a terrific colorful view of the 1988-2008 time period.
