A Born Politican

This article presents information about the book "Charles A. Beard: An Appraisal," edited by Howard Beale. Charles A. Beard was, and remains a fascinating problem in American civilization. Totally devoid of historic instinct he yet made himself the greatest historian of his time and, indeed, of all American time. Twelve gifted scholars have joined to create this book. The group of appraisals is so excellent, a reviewer hesitates to appraise them severally. Beard was born and bred a politician and a politician he remained to his end.
