According to John Gizzi, White Correspondent for 30+ years, Political Columnist and White House Correspondent, Newsmax: "In the tradition of historians Will and Ariel Durant in "The Story of Civilization," Tom Del Beccaro dramatically relates the ideological and political struggles of earlier eras to the clashes of today. In bringing to life the incendiary politics of eras such as the Gilded Age--with high voter turnout (80% nationwide in the 1880's), the rise of third parties, and hard-fought presidential elections--Mr. Del Beccaro helps us better understand the negativism of politics today."
