"This volume naturally begins with the political campaign of 1896 during which three men absorbed public attention - McKinley, Bryan and Mark Hanna. Of McKinley and Bryan, up to 1896, the student of affairs will have had some idea, but Hanna deserves an introductory notice before the last eight years of his crowded life are related. Called an enigma in New York City, he was no enigma whatever to his intimates, except that they failed to gauge his towering ability. They knew him for a shrewd money-getter, able and diligent in business, but they could not believe that he would reach a high position in public affairs... " - James Ford Rhodes

"Taking him by and large Roosevelt was a great man. He would have made an ideal war President. But as he himself wrote: 'When I left the Presidency I finished seven and a half years of administration, during which not one shot had been fired against a foreign foe. We were at absolute peace and there was no nation in the world with whom a war-cloud threatened, no nation in the world whom we had wronged, or from whom we had anything to fear.' His carrying out of 'the homely old adage,' 'Speak softly and carry a big stick: you will go far' had proved effective during his administration.
Roosevelt had a wonderful brain; an indomitable capacity for work. His mistakes were few; his accomplishments many. Rudyard Kipling wrote thus to Brander Matthews in 1910: 'I saw him for a hectic half hour in London and a little at Oxford. Take care of, him. He is scarce and valuable.' " - James Ford Rhodes
