Happy 85th birthday today to former Indiana congressman and Presidential Medal of Freedom winner Lee Hamilton! We're celebrating his birthday and the upcoming Indiana bicentennial by giving away a copy of his new book Congress, Presidents, and American Politics.
Kirkus Reviews calls Hamilton's book "a solid look at the thinking, actions, and failures from the Lyndon Johnson years to the present. . . . Hamilton's views on politicians might just renew some readers' faith in our elected officials. At once encouraging and enlightening, his writings stir hope, and what he says is still important all these years later. . . . The book—essentially an encapsulation of the author's philosophy of politics and politicians—is a good choice for those who want to believe in government again."
You can learn more about the book in a podcast with Hamilton that will air April 24 on Through the Gates: IU This Week.
