New Book Released With David Davenport/Amity Shlaes Chapter on Hoover/Coolidge and Conservatism September 15, 2016

Posted by daviddavenport in Op/Eds.

Talmage Boston, a Dallas attorney, has published a new book: Cross-Examining History: A Lawyer Gets Answers from the Experts about our Presidents.

Boston interviewed presidential biographers and historians about our presidents, asking the “hard questions.” In New York last fall, he did an interview of Amity Shlaes and me, based on her book on Coolidge and my co-authored book on Hoover, about Presidents Coolidge and Hoover and who was the real father of modern American conservatism.

Amity and I enjoyed the friendly point-counterpoint, and the edited transcript of our exchange is a chapter in this book.

A description is available on Amazon.com where, of course, you can also purchase a copy:


Oh yes, a few others like David McCullough and Ken Burns are also in the book!
