Here’s a book that just showed up this week in the store and I’m eager to get a good look at it. I have nothing to offer in terms of insights but this is the quote from the book’s Indiebound page:

“Modeled on one of the most famous histories of ancient Rome (The Twelve Caesars), Nigel Hamilton’s new book, American Caesars, looks afresh at the lives and careers of the twelve leaders of the American empire since World War II, from Franklin D. Roosevelt to George W. Bush.”

Are you tempted?
