An American icon and hero faces a nation--and a world--in transition, as seen in this retrospective of the popular president's career. A leader of the Reconstruction era, whose contested election eerily parallels the election debacle of 2000 The disputed election of 1876 between Rutherford B. Hayes and Samuel Tilden, in which Congress set up a special electoral commission, handing the disputed electoral votes to Hayes, brings recent events into sharp focus. Historian Hans L. Trefousse explores Hayes's new relevance and reconsiders what many have seen as the pitfalls of his presidency. While Hayes did officially terminate the Reconstruction, Trefousse points out that this process was already well under way by the start of his term and there was little he could do to stop it. A great intellectual and one of our best-educated presidents, Hayes did much more in the way of healing the nation and elevating the presidency.… (mais)

A poor telling of Hayes's life that shows misplaced priorities. I'm sure his patronage of Ohio libraries was important to him, but did it really warrant nearly as much space as the contested election of 1876? Because that's what I would have wanted to read more about. There are also bizarre asides included without explanation; for example, one sentence says the feminists supported Hayes, but it doesn't describe why, or what issued "the feminists"were grappling with at the time.

All the books in 'The American Presidents' series are short. Therefore, the success of any book in this series depends of what kind of information author decides to squeeze into it. I found some information irrelevant (e.g. I don't care about details of Rutherford Hayes' travel considering there were so many other details I would like to read about). I also found forced comparison to Bush quite annoying. Overall, it gives some basic idea about Hayes, whose probably the main achievement was a civil service reform. And just for that he should be remembered as a successful president. ( )

This is an excellent primer to introduce a president who is essentially unknown to most readers today. He was a man who was level-headed, forward-thinking, well-educated, well-read, well-traveled, and who could compromise when necessary and hold out when warranted. Trefousse's style nearly drove me batty, however, because when he couldn't think of anything else to say, he essentially wrote, "He was a nice man." I suspect there's much more than niceness which produced this President. ( )
