In the current issue of Forbes, Caspar Weinberger recommends three books on American history:

  • 1776 by David McCullough - "It is a chronical of the most important year and defining year in American history and, in the words of one critic, in 'the history of the modern world'."
  • Benjamin Franklin: An American Life by Walter Isaacson - "[T]his biography is likely to become the standard by which other volumes on this extraordinary human being are judged."
  • Andrew Jackson: A Life and Times by H.W. Brands (due Oct. 2005) - " sure to become the major Jackson biography."
