When Ronald Reagan moved into the White House, he ordered Calvin Coolidge's portrait to be moved next to Lincoln's and Jefferson's in a place of high honor. Most Americans today have forgotten Coolidge's legacy; but Reagan knew well that Coolidge's programs in the 1920s presaged the conservative movement toward smaller government and reduced taxes. Historian Robert Sobel looks at Coolidge's impressive record as president-his four tax cuts, his yearly budget surplus, his success shrinking the debt-in this expansive biography of a forgotten American icon.
