The Chosen by Chaim Potok
The Chosen

Andrew Riley, June 5, 2011

I read this book onced every couple of years, and I'm always enthralled. Between well-developed characters, an incredible wealth of cultural geography, and an engaging plot, it's an amazing read.

Supreme Power: Franklin Roosevelt vs. the Supreme Court by Jeff Shesol
Supreme Power: Franklin Roosevelt vs. the Supreme Court

Andrew Riley, June 5, 2011

This book covers a lot of ground, masterfully. It is at once a history of the 1937 "Court-Packing Plan," an ethnography of FDR's Cabinet, an assessment of the status of the New Deal toward the end of the 1930s, and a frank biography of Roosevelt himself. Incredibly detailed, it's the perfect read for a law or politics buff, FDR admirer, or student of the New Deal; despite its length, it's a hard book to put down.
