Product description

Review

"There are few great teachers in any generation. One such during the second half of the twentieth century was Richard W. Leopold, a professor of the history of American foreign policy Harvard and Northwestern. Steven J. Harper has caught the spirit and tone of Dick Leopold's life and career in this graceful, admiring biography which aptly describes the stunning qualities of instruction, academic citizenship, and professional scholarship that Leopold exemplified in his distinguished career." --John Morton Blum, Sterling Professor of History (emeritus) at Yale University and author of "The Republican Roosevelt," " V was for Victory," " "and other books"

"We Americans today live too much in historical bubbles, protected from the cleansing knowledge of time and man's history. And so, how greatly we need this well-written and evocative book about one of our greatest twentieth century teachers! Here, in the amazing and inspiring life of Richard Leopold, a man impassioned by excellence, we can see and feel one of the great and searching historic minds of our time--and grapple with our past anew. Personally, I am immensely comforted and inspired by this rare narrative of a man who never bent the truth." --Georgie Anne Geyer, syndicated columnist, Universal Press Syndicate, and author of "Guerrilla Prince," and other books"
