  1. Book ImageThaddeus Stevens: Scourge of the South

    Fawn M. Brodie

    "More imaginatively than any other Stevens biographer, Fawn Brodie has speculated upon the emotional springs of the man's behavior.

His biographies of Napoleon and other world-famous figures have made him one of the most widely read, widely appreciated writers of our time. Like Francis Hackett he combines thorough scholarship with a gift for the dramatic.
