Alfred E. Smith : The Happy Warrior

Alfred E. Smith : The Happy Warrior

Description

The meteoric rise and dramatic fall of Alfred E. Smith, the brash, Catholic anti-Prohibitionist from New York's Lower East Side, are well known. His job at the Fulton Fish Market through his years in the state legislature and as four-time governor of New York to his crushing defeat in 1928 and his final, puzzling defection from the Democratic party in 1936 are the stuff of legend. Christopher M. Finan provides a full, nuanced study, written with verve and zeal, of this intriguing--and misunderstood--politician.
