Adlai Stevenson III‘s family has been involved in American politics since Abraham Lincoln was president. They’ve kept meticulous records of the family’s involvement in governing the country. While his father ran for president twice and he was twice a senator from Illinois, their tenure at the levers of power reads as a virtual who’s who. On a more somber note, the Senator looks at empires and their eventual decline and gives candid analysis about where the United States appears to be in the cycle. Some might not like what he has to say, but he is a gentle elder statesman who has seen it all. There’s also an interesting personal perspective on Nixon’s gold window closure as the Senator was in the thick of it.
