"A stunning work of history."—Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of No Ordinary Time and Team of Rivals
Jeff Shesol…is not the first to chronicle what became known as the "court-packing" controversy, but Supreme Power is by far the most detailedand most rivetingaccount of this extraordinary event…an impressive and engaging bookan excellent work of narrative history. It is deeply researched and beautifully written. Even readers who already know the outcome will find it hard not to feel the suspense that surrounded the battle, so successfully does Shesol recreate the atmosphere of this great controversy.
