During his presidency, Warren G. Harding was beloved. His campaign had given voice to a public exhausted by World War I and President Wilson's debilitating stroke. He promised the American people that, under his watch, life and governance would once again be manageable. But after he died unexpectedly in the spring of 1923, Harding's legacy was soon tarnished by scandals not of his making. In this wise and compelling biography, President Nixon's former White House counsel illuminates another presidency marked by scandal.
